NUS Liberation Conferences 


What is an NUS Liberation Conference?

NUS (National Union of Students) is a group 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.

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. 

Full information about NUS Liberation Conferences is available on their website.

If you are unsure or need any more information about NUS Liberation Conferences, please email representation@kclsu.org.


Submit motions to NUS Liberation Conference 

King's students can submit motions to NUS Liberation conferences for these to become national policy. Policy is a statement of what the campaign believes about an issue and also what it resolves to do about that issue. Here is how you can do it:

  1. Submit your motion using this form.  
  2. Then, the motion will go to the appropriate KCLSU Network. The Network will take a vote on the motion; if the Network supports the motion, it will be sent to the relevant NUS Liberation Conference. 
  3. The motion will be discussed and voted on at the NUS conference. You do not need to attend the conference in order for this to happen – one of the elected delegates can present your motion.
  4. If it passes, it will become NUS policy, and so will set out NUS’ political stance and work for the year ahead.

Email representation@kclsu.org if you have any questions or want some support writing your motion. 


Who attends NUS Liberation Conferences?

Everyone who attends an NUS Liberation Conference as a representative is a member of one of our KCLSU Networks and self-defines into the relevant Liberation Campaign at NUS. Our delegations are made up of the relevant Network Officer (elected in the Spring) as well as students who are elected in Autumn. 

Where possible, KCLSU aims to send as many delegates as we are entitled to. Delegate entitlements are set individually by each autonomous campaign and therefore, vary in size and specification across conferences. Some NUS Conferences use the NUS Fair Representation system and others have reserved spaces.

Our elected delegates are listed below. If you want to know more about what being a delegate involves, you can find out more information here
