Student Government runs through Fall and Winter terms each year with its main purpose being to assist in establishing a cohesive student body as well as enabling good working connections between students, faculty and staff.

Student Government works closely with Student Services and is encouraged to run events for the student body throughout the academic year, with Student Services acting as advisors who will help to facilitate. Many of the activities that Government has carried out facilitate peer-based community building, such as:

  • Theme Nights
  • Charity Auctions

In addition Government fosters Community Involvement by connecting students to external organisations and parties. At the end of the year, Student Government is asked to consider leaving behind a legacy on behalf of the student body.

Student Government consists of an elected body, with a:

  • President*
  • Vice President*
  • Musicians in Residence Representative*
  • Representatives from each of Bader Hall’s corridors
  • Upper Year Representative(s)

Corridor Representatives and the Upper Year Rep will further be appointed into representative roles to advocate and improve connections between students and departments in areas specific to the BISC, such as:

  • Minibus Representative
  • Food Representative
  • Sports Representative
  • Entertainments Representative
  • Friends of Herstmonceux Representative

Government members are expected to attend an initial training session as well as weekly meetings - the day and time of which will decided by the elected Government in accordance with elected members’ schedules. They will also take responsibility for Government-led activities. Each meeting will be attended by a member of Student Services Management, who acts as advisor providing institutional knowledge as well as ensuring that events conform to Health and Safety regulations and are feasible for the fit and purpose of the institution and grounds.

*These members must be studying at the BISC for the entire academic year and in good academic standing.
