House Education exists as a faculty house, and as such, we receive our mandate in terms of section 3.5 of the Organised Student Life Policy.
As provided for in s188.8.131.52 of the OSL, as a Faculty House, House Education, is an official student structure for all students, including day students and residence students, registered in the faculty of education.
We are mandated by the OSL to provide a platform for students to participate in extra-curricular or co-curricular student life activities and experiences as well as student development within the Faculty of Education.
Our role as a Faculty House also includes but is not limited to connecting faculty management and administration, class representatives, the Student Representative Council (SRC), Faculty Sub-Houses, and the general student communities within and across Faculty Houses.
The House Education EC is essentially a bunch of happy, friendly student leaders who are looking to make a real difference in the lives of the University of Pretoria’s Education students from undergraduate level to postgraduate level.
Primarily, we are here to represent the needs and views of students – student interests are our interests.
Secondarily, we have planned a multitude of projects and events that seeks to benefit our constituents, like special talks, the education faculty festival, and many other cool things to enhance the student experience.
