During the research a number of general scientific methods were used: historical, descriptive and comparative. With the help of the historical method, the main stages of the development of student self-government, the features of its transformation in the educational space, were analyzed. The descriptive method made it possible to single out and systematize the features of the functioning of bodies of student government at all stages of its development. The application of the comparative method helped to identify the main differences and general characteristics in the structures of student self-government and procedurally provided a comparison of the implementation of the rights and competencies of student self-government bodies.

For the first time, the main stages of the formation and development of student self-government in the Higher State Educational Establishment of Ukraine «Bukovinian State Medical University» are systematically presented, the understanding of the essence and functions of student self-government in the higher educational institution was deepened, and ideas for attracting students as competent, active and constructive partners in creation and formation of the European Higher Education Area. Conclusions. It is proved that student self-government is a form of self-organization of students, a mechanism for representation and assertion of one's rights, the possibility of self-realization. It is student self-management that is called upon to protect the rights of students and be their representative in the administrations of universities. Student self-government is determined by the law and the real ability of the student community to independently resolve issues within the framework of the current legislation and the university statute. The authors analyzed the development of student self-government in the historical aspect, which made it possible to determine the direct relationship between the essential features of its development and socio-political tendencies in the state.
