NUS Delegates

Each year in Michaelmas Term the Students' Union elects 3 delegates to attend the NUS National Conference, which this year will be from the 27th - 29th March 2018 in Glasgow.

The National Union of Students (NUS) is a nationwide organisation who represent student issues across Further and Higher Education on a national scale. They lobby the government, support students' unions and work with other organisations to improve the life of students across the country.

Each year they hold a National Conference to debate the issues of the day, vote on national policy and elect their officers for the coming year.

Each students' union sends delegates to Conference to join in the debate and vote on policy and in the elections, and they are there on behalf of their members!
