What is the NUS?

The National Union of Students (NUS) is the national voice of over 6 million students across the United Kingdom. It is made up of roughly 600 Students’ Guilds, Unions and Associations across the country and exists to promote, extend, and defend students’ rights and interests. You can read more about the NUS on their website.

What is a National Delegate?

A National Delegate is a current Exeter student that has been elected to represent Exeter students at NUS National Conference. Our delegates vote on policy, in elections (where applicable), and on reports. They also discuss options for national action, share best practice, and meet and network with hundreds of other delegates.  

At National Conference – the key decision-making body within NUS – they bring together delegates from every affiliated Students’ Guild, Association, or Union to discuss what actions NUS is going to take.  

Liberation conference provides an opportunity for students within liberation communities to network, vote on policy, and hold NUS Officers to account.

Under NUS policy, 50% of the delegation shall be reserved for students who self-define as Women.
