What is the NUS?
The NUS is the National Union of Students. (You might have heard of their student discount card – they do other stuff too!)
The NUS exists to represent students to make sure you are listened to and supported. There are 563 Student Unions in the NUS, meaning it’s the largest student organisation in the UK, representing millions of students.
Its successes include securing the exemption to pay Council Tax for students, the student railcard, establishing a Lad Culture/harassment taskforce and much more.
What does an NUS Delegate do?
The LJMU NUS Delegates will go to the conference to represent the views of all 20,000 LJMU students. (A pretty cool opportunity.) The conference is over three days in Glasgow, from 27th - 29th March. Six delegates from LJMU will go, one of which will be the President of LiverpoolSU, Yasmin Ibrahim. Here you will:
