The Best Student Life. Bristol SU


National Union of Students logo

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 seven 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. Our delegates can be found below - they were elected in October 2017.

Motions for NUS National Conference

Like all affiliated Students’ Unions, Bristol SU can submit motions to this conference and the deadline to submit these to NUS is 9th Feb 2018.

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 will then be invited to attend Standing Committee on Tuesday 6th February 6pm (4th Floor Bristol SU) to present the motion. Standing Committee will then vote on the motions and priority rank them and the top 1400 words will be sent on behalf of Bristol SU to NUS.
