The National Union of Students (NUS) is the national voice of students helping them to campaign, get cheap student discounts and provide advice on living student life to the full. NUS strives to promote defend and extend the rights of students' and to champion strong and active students' unions. This means they champion the rights of Liverpool Hope students nationally and work to make our students' union even better!
Through the 600 Affiliated Students’ Unions, the NUS represents over 7 million students and Liverpool Hope Students’ Union has an important role to play in that. Any Liverpool Hope student can stand for election to attend annual, zone and liberation conferences held throughout the year.
What is Annual Conference?
NUS Annual Conference is to set the policy, direction and priorities for the year. It is also where candidates running for National President, Vice Presidents and the National Executive Council are elected.
What are Liberation Campaigns and what are the conferences?
The four liberation campaigns are the Black Students’ Campaign, Disabled Students’ Campaign, Women’s Campaign and the LGBT Students’ Campaign. Each year they hold individual conferences for those who self- define within those groups to vote on the policy and direction of the campaign.
