National Conference Delegates

NUS (National Union of Students) is a confederation of student unions in the UK. Being affiliated with NUS means that as a union, we can create policy and campaign on a national level.

National Conference is the biggest event in the NUS year - every year, around 1000 delegates will attend the event in Brighton. NUS Conferences are the lead decision making bodies of the organisation where delegates representing students from across NUS membership review the work over the last year, decide on priorities and policy for the following year and elect the leadership.

NUS National Conference Delegates represent King’s students at the NUS National Conference and help shape the national conversation.

There are 8 NUS National Conference Delegate positions available. 4 of these are reserved for candidates who self-define as women, so please be sure to fill in the 'Profile' section when nominating yourself.
