We’ve fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, two Prime Ministers and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. We’ve welcomed Albert Einstein to give a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity.

The SRC’s main responsibility is to represent the students of the University, and this means all students. Whether you are a mature student, an international student, part-time, doing a post-graduate qualification or straight from school, the SRC works for your interests.
The SRC is a student-led organisation, run by a council which includes 30 student members and an executive formed by sabbatical and non-sabbatical officers. All registered students of the University have the right to vote and can stand for elections, which usually take place in October and March every year.

Most lecturers are passionate and very helpful. The resources and student support on the main campus are acceptable, on the second campus (Dumfries) there is a lack of both.
