Join the Student Representative Group program

The Student Representative Group (SRG) program at VU Sydney offers students meaningful opportunities to participate in volunteer work within university activities. As volunteers, students will dedicate their time and skills to various community service projects organised by the University.

We are looking for friendly, energetic and highly motivated students. If you're interested in joining the program, contact the Student Engagement Officer at VU Sydney.

About the program

The primary objective of the SRG is to empower a selected group of students to represent the student body effectively. This involves organising structured group meetings to ensure proper recognition and representation of the student body. 

The SRG aims to:

  • enhance the advancement of student life, quality education, and student participation
  • contribute to the improvement of student life in both academic and social aspects
  • bridge the gap between students and management
  • foster an inclusive environment that recognizes and represents students from all cultural groups
  • improve transparency through consistent communication with VU students
  • encourage and support active participation of all students in community engagement.
