Apply now for NUS Conferences for Postgrads and more



Applications are now open for Students’ Union funding to go to NUS Sections Conferences. These conferences cover Postgraduate Students, Mature & Part-Time Students and Parents and Carers. The International Students section of the conference was advertised earlier and delegates have been allocated.

These Conferences bring together delegates from students' unions affiliated to National Union of Students UK to discuss, debate and vote on motions and elect the political leadership for the year ahead. They are a great way to get involved in the student movement, to set the agenda for the year ahead for NUS, and to meet other students from across the UK.

The Union has funding for up to two students to attend the following conferences. Your train travel and accommodation, and any refreshments required on the trip, will be covered.

The Students’ Union gets one vote per conference, so delegates will need to agree on how to vote.

To apply to attend, please download and complete a Conference Application Form and send it to Juliettte at juliette.c@sussexstudent.com  by Friday 21st April. The Executive Committee will then agree on who to send.

The timings of the Conferences are as follows and they are taking place in Leeds.
