NUS Delegates (x5)

NUS are not just the people behind the discount card - the National Union of Students (NUS) represents all students in higher and further education across the UK on issues of national importance. Over 600 students’ unions across the UK, including ours are affiliated members. NUS runs an annual National Conference which took place from the 27th to the 29th March 2018 in sunny Glasgow

NUS have led on many high-profile campaigns, including those on fees and funding, changes to disabled students allowance, welfare and students’ rights, liberations issues affecting groups like LGBT, International students, Black students and many more.  Following this year's general election, National Conference is likely to be a hub of debate and discussion about how student issues will be dealt with by a new government. 

Benefits of standing

  • You’ll be voting on topics of national importance and having your say on the high-profile political work NUS undertakes
  • You’ll be representing the Salford student body – that’s over 20000 students!
  • You’ll experience an intriguing and exciting conference, meeting students from all over the UK
  • As a low-commitment role, you can hold this position while studying and aside from the 3 days of the conference and an initial meeting with your fellow delegates, you won’t need to spare any more time during the year
  • This is a good way of experiencing Union elections, particularly if you are interested in running for one of our Sabbatical positions next semester!
