In terms of the current Constitution for Student Governance, as approved by Senate in 2013, the student governance system at the Institute comprises of a two-tier constituency-based model which consists of the

The constituencies represented in student governance are:

The Student Parliament is the plenary body of student governance and determines the wider mandate for student governance. Its leader is the Speaker. Students are elected in the constituencies (each society) to serve on the Student Parliament, which is the larger of the two bodies in the two-tier system. The Student Parliament provides the broadest platform for student representation and determines the agenda for student governance on an annual basis. 

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the executive body of student governance and subsequently charters and provides most of the funding for other student groups, and represents students' interests when dealing with the administration. The SRC is the residential student government, specialising in programming, policy, and facilities and services. The Student Representative Council (SRC) is elected by the whole student body (Student Union). It is responsible for the day-to-day administration of student governance and nominates student representatives to serve on various University committees. The head of the SRC is the Premier. 

The Student Court is the judicial body of student governance and adjudicates disputes primarily between student organisations and its judge's sit on the panel of student disciplinary hearings. The head, who is the Chief Justice, presides over the swearing of the Premier and the Speaker into office. 

An independent electoral committee oversees the annual election processes. All registered students qualify to vote in the election of the Student Parliament and the Premier of Student Union, which is held according to voter's rolls in the various constituencies. Students who wish to represent their societies in the Student Parliament must make themselves available as candidates in the election and must meet certain minimum requirements as set out in the Constitution for Student Governance.
