Sabbatical officers

They are the most senior representative of students to the University, and sit on a number of committees including the two governing bodies of the University, Senate and Court. It is their job to make sure students’ voices are heard at the highest level of the University.

All four of the sabbatical officers work full time representing the students at Glasgow University. They work closely as a team of four, with the permanent staff of the SRC and the elected council members to represent students at Glasgow University.

Their remits are detailed below.
