Scottish Students' RepresentativeCouncils (SRC) were established by the Universities (Scotland) Act 1889 and are present at the four ancient universities of Scotland: Aberdeen, St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as the more recently established University of Dundee, though at Aberdeen the body has been renamed to as the Students' Association Council.
The SRC or its Students' Association may choose to facilitate a vote on membership of the National Union of Students Scotland or the Coalition of Higher Education Students in Scotland, and it is the Students' Association, rather than the individual students, which may become a member of one of those bodies.
