Each person elected will sit a two-year term and be required to attend 6 meetings per year. An induction into the business of the board and the business of the guild is provided prior to commencing your term.

the student representative council

The Student Representative Council consists of 24 students who have the responsibility to advocate and represent all students on campus to the University and wider community. The 24 positions are grouped into Guild Executive and Faculty Councillors. Each Guild Executive is expected to contribute hours per week (dependant on role) for their year term and honorarium is given to reflect productive time. Faculty councillors are expected to attend 8 council meetings and bring any faculty related issues to the Guild executive during their year term. You will be given a small honorarium at the end of the year for your time. We encourage you to attend an induction on commencement of your role.

During your year term you will be the custodian of your position ensuring the continuation of existing services while ensuring the Guild stays relevant with the issues of todays students. A mandatory induction will take place on commencement of your role.

the media team (qut glass magazine)

The Media Team are non-voting members of the Student Representative Council to ensure impartial reporting through QUT Glass. QUT Glass Magazine is a completely student-run magazine and website that publishes student-focused articles and submissions. The only publication you need for student life.  With a maximum of five editors, you will be given an honorarium for productive time and receive a hand over from the previous media team.
