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.

NUS National Conference

We send six elected delegates to the NUS National Conference every year. These students represent Bristol SU and vote on policy and in elections. All expenses are covered for the conference and you will meet all other Unions affiliated with NUS to choose the direction the National Union works towards.

NUS is not just the discount card, it campaigns on major issues affecting students. Have your say in what Bristol students care about and be an NUS Delegate this year.

In 2018, the NUS Conference will take place on 27-29th March in Glasgow. You can nominate yourself to be a delegate now here, until the 11th October.

Like all affiliated Students’ Unions, Bristol SU can submit motions to this conference. Standing Committee compiles and agrees Bristol SU's final list. Any student can write a motion for Standing Committees consideration - please refer to the NUS guide to writing a motion

In 2017, the conference took place on the 25-27th April. The following delegates attended:

  • Sally Patterson
