Council is the elected body of students on the SRC who meet a minimum of 6 times a year. It is at Council meetings that policy is passed, and issues affecting students are raised. Council members can then work with the University, and various services and departments to ensure that students’ experience of Glasgow are the best they can be.

From 2011/12 the university will recognise student council members on their university transcript.
Known as the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), this new version of the university transcript will not only list academic achievements, but also many other achievements as well. So if council members can have the chance to have their efforts recognised on the documents they receive at graduation.
GUSRC have been involved with the development of the HEAR and welcome the new measures in showing the value placed on extracurricular activity by the University. It can also serve as an indication for potential employers to the kinds of activity undertaken alongside studies as a University of Glasgow student.
If you would like any more information on the HEAR; the eligible activities which can be included; and how to apply contact the University of Glasgow Senate Office.
