Today is the last day left to nominate the NUS Delegate candidates who aim to represent your student issues at national level.
A team of six students will head to a National Conference in April 2015 so they can represent and lobby for the interests of fellow students. They also help to set the policy and leadership of the NUS for the year ahead.
Once these have been decided, the NUS can get to work on their own investigations and research – making sure they support students’ unions and fight discrimination, isolation, and injustice.
Voting for your preferred NUS delegates allows them to speak on your behalf and make sure any issues you feel strongly about as a student are discussed on a national scale. This way, we can work towards positive changes for the future.
Previous decisions made at NUS Conference have led to organising a national demonstration against tuition fees and lobbying the Government for better regulations for landlords – so voting for the candidates you feel would represent your views best could really help to make changes to the issues that matter most to you.
