The Students' Parliament

Students are elected in these constituencies to serve on the Student Parliament. The Student Parliament provides the broadest platform for student representation and determines the agenda for student governance on an annual basis.

The constituencies represented in the 21-member student Parliament are the Societies:

  • Graduate Society (Postgraduate students only)
  • Jeremiah Society
  • Nehemiah Society
  • Habakkuk Society

An independent electoral committee oversees the annual election processes within the each Society. All registered students qualify to vote in the election of the Student Parliament, which is held according to voter's rolls in the various constituencies. The leader of the Students' Parliament is the Speaker appointed by the Chief of the Clan. Students who wish to serve on the Student Parliament must make themselves available as candidates in the election and must meet certain minimum requirements as set out in the Constitution for Student Governance.
