UOWD’s Student Representative Council (SRC) offers an exciting opportunity for students to develop planning and leadership skills, whilst representing the voice of more than 3,500 students.
The SRC is the recognised organisation for communications representing the student body in all matters affecting their common interests. Working on behalf of all UOWD students, the SRC is responsible for communicating their opinions, sharing information and driving their contribution to the intellectual, social and cultural development of the University.
Every year there are opportunities for students to be elected to a variety of roles within the SRC, to support to the wellbeing of the student body and contribute to the strategic progression of the organisation. As an elected member you will develop communication, leadership, planning, negotiation, and presentation skills, each of which will give you a competitive edge when seeking employment opportunities.
UniCrew is a volunteer program run by the Student Services Department that provides students with valuable work experience. UniCrew members have a number of varied and interesting duties during the course of a semester. Areas you could be involved in include:
- Assisting at enrolment days and orientation days.
- Participating in “Ask me Kiosk” during the first week of every semester.
- Leading campus tours.
- Being the face of the university to new students.
- Participating in key promotions and research activities.
- Attending information sessions at secondary schools.
UniCrew volunteers need to be confident communicators who are reliable and responsible and, most importantly, interested in helping others.
Each volunteer receives a UniCrew shirt, a Certificate of Participation, free food and refreshments at events, and a letter of reference at the end of the year.
UniCrew is a valuable way to gain work experience in a real workplace situation and have fun at the same time and it is an asset to any graduate’s CV.
