NUS Elections 2018

Nominations are now open to become an NUS delegate and attend the annual NUS conferences in 2019. This is your opportunity to represent your students’ union and influence the student movement on a national level.

Every year The Union sends students to National Union of Students (NUS) conferences on behalf of students at Manchester Met. At the conferences, students from student unions across the UK gather to discuss and promote students’ rights and issues. The outcome of the conferences shape future NUS decision and policymaking – impacting students on a national level. 

This is your chance to meet new people, represent your fellow students and gain some excellent experience. If you get voted in to become an NUS delegate by your fellow students, The Union covers all travel and accommodation costs to attend the conference.
