Representing you nationally at NUS Conference
The NUS National Conference takes place once a year and it is where over 1200 students from across the country meet to decide who will lead NUS and what campaigns they will work on. For more information on NUS, please click here.
The NUS delegate elections decide who will represent UPSU at this important event. If voted in, it will be your responsibility to attend the conference and make sure the voice of Plymouth University students are heard and represented!
As UPSU affiliate to NUS we are entitled to send 6 delegates to the NUS Annual Conference. This is a cross campus ballot where the student body decides who to send to the conference to represent Plymouth students on a national level.
The next conference will take place in Glasgow from the 8 – 11 April 2019 – The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Glasgow

At the conference, the delegates will have 3 different roles to fulfil:
1. Vote on Motions
Students from all over the country have the chance to submit motions (ideas) that will get discussed at the conference. It is up to our delegates to represent the students at Plymouth University and to vote for or against these motions. If the majority of delegates present at the conference vote to pass a motion, it will become NUS policy.
2. Vote in Elections
During the National Conference, the future leaders of NUS are elected. This includes the president, Vice Presidents, Trustees and other important roles.
3. Vote on Reports
NUS present various reports during the conference. These include reports from the elected leaders and reports on their finances and estimates for the following year. Delegates at the conference can vote whether to approve these reports or not.
Then of course, delegates could get involved in any of the debates that take place, and give Plymouth a national voice!
Your NUS Delegates for 2019 are; Alex Doyle, Charlotte Panchaud, Tilda Fraser, Dominic Need and Brandon Carr-Malloch
All candidate manifestos for Full-time NUS Positions can be found on the NUS website
