NUS Delegates

 
 

Purpose of the Role

The National Union of Students (NUS) is a voluntary membership organisation that represent the interests of more than seven million students nationally. Annually they hold a conference to decide on the policies for the year and the issues they are going to focus their attention on. As a NUS delegate you get the opportunity to vote on what these will be, shaping the year ahead for NUS, and to elect the National President and Vice Presidents.   It is also a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in networking and meet with other delegates from across the UK to share ideas and thoughts.
