Bristol SU is affiliated to the National Union of Students - NUS.
We hold a referendum on our affiliation every three years (unless called at another time). The last referendum was held in October 2016 and the decision was to remain affiliated.
We send seven elected delegates to the NUS National Conference every year. These students represent Bristol SU and vote on the policy and elections that decide the direction of NUS. NUS is not just the discount card, it campaigns on major issues affecting students.
In 2019, the NUS Conference will take place on 9-11th April in Glasgow.
Like all affiliated Students’ Unions, Bristol SU can submit motions to this conference.
Standing Committee (Full Time Officers, Chair of Networks, Faculty Reps and Student Trustees) compiles and agrees Bristol SU's final list of motions to send to NUS. Any student can write a motion for Standing Committees consideration - please refer to the NUS guide to writing a motion. You can email your motions to email@example.com
The deadline for motions to be submitted is 9am Tuesday 5th February 2019 and the meeting to discuss these motions is 7pm Thursday 7th February 2019 at Bristol SU. You will be invited to present your motion and the committee will vote on the motion and the priority of what we send in as each union can only send 1400 words.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this process or want guidance for writing motions.
Our 2019 delegates are:
