NUS delegates

Each year, Cambridge students elect seven delegates who will go to NUS National Conference. Three of those delegates must be women.

NUS is the National Union of Students, the organisation formed out of ‘constituent’ students’ unions in Higher Education and Further Education across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

NUS represents students on a national scale, lobbies the government, supports individual students’ unions and campaigns on a variety of issues directed by the student membership. As a delegate, you’re a vital part of setting NUS’ direction for the year to come.

If you want to secure a change in the way Universities are run, or a government policy that impacts students, or the work NUS currently does for students, you could run to be an NUS delegate.

This year, NUS Conference will take place in Liverpool on 28th-29th March 2022.
