Health Sciences Students' Council (HSSC)

The HSSC is the highest decision making body on all issues of student governance at the UCT Faculty of Health Sciences. It is made up of ten students who are democratically elected to office. The HSSC members represent and make submissions which express student's views, concerns and aspirations to various committees such as the Faculty Education Board, the Assessment Committee, the Health and Safety committee and to the Dean.

The key role of the HSSC is to help students fulfil their academic goal of graduation, by helping to advocate for the most ideal teaching and learning environment at our Faculty. This means that students can approach and be assisted by the HSSC with the following:
