NUS Delegates go to NUS’ National Conference on your behalf where they vote on national policy, submit their own motions and learn from other delegates around the country. This year NUS’ diversity policy meant that this position was open to women only.
The National Union of Students (NUS) is the organisation that represents 7 million students from more than 600 students’ unions across the country. As an organisation it champions the voice of students, trains delegates to help improve their unions and aims to develop and shape education so that it is the best it can possibly be for its current members. NUS fight for students’ rights with campaigns, through targeted action, and by lobbying government to give students a fairer deal.

A Student Trustee sits on the highest decision-making committee of the Students’ Union, to ensure that the organisation is being run according to the constitution.
Student Trustees run the Students' Union along with the elected full-time officers and external trustees. They do this by making key decisions about the future of the organisation at Trustee Board meetings - there are around seven meetings in a year. Student Trustees look closely at the Students' Union’s finances and review performance against the organisation’s strategic aims. They are responsible for ensuring that the Students' Union is run in accordance with law and other policies including the constitution.
