Abstract: The role of student self-government in modern educational space is large enough since it makes it possible to extend the future graduates’ training not only to professional activity, as authors note, but also to different life processes in the society. The modern college graduate should be mobile, creative and independent in managing his own life and processes related to the professional field. Student self-government comes to the fore in this issue. Its organization is the most important part of college’s activities. A study carried out among the students of Nizhny Novgorod colleges is represented in the paper. Its findings showed the need for introducing changes to the current system of student self-government. The purpose of the paper is to build a model of student self-government organization, which could be used at a Russian college. The authors offered the development of methodological recommendations for organizing student self-government. The implementation of student self-government at a college should pass several stages: forming an initiative group, preparing and carrying out a sociological study to reveal self-government problems, developing a project, getting students acquainted with the project, collecting remarks and offers, finalizing the project, the order about the implementation of self-government at the college, elections to the student self-government council, organizing the public control over student self-government functioning. Moreover, the directions for the development of self-government are found out and their content is extended.
