As part of our affiliation with the National Union of Students (NUS), Birkbeck Students' Union sends 3 elected student representatives to the annual NUS National Conference where the policy of the national union is determined. Our SU officers also attend conferences and workshops throughout the year, keeping Birkbeck connected with student politics across the country & bringing the best ideas back to our campus.
Being involved with NUS is an excellent opportunity to ensure that Birkbeck students and their interests are being heard on a national level. The decisions made at the national conference shape the landscape for students across the country.
We elect these delegates each year in our Students' Union Spring Elections, so if you think you have what it takes to represent Birkbeck students at National Conference, keep your eyes peeled for more information on elections!
Our students are committed to NUS London and Birkbeck is heavily involved in building the London region of NUS up from the bottom, striving to create an effective voice that represents all London students. Birkbeck hosts many of NUS London's general & executive meetings: campaigning priorities are discussed and voted on while students from universities across the capital pool their thoughts and resources in a bid to enhance the wellbeing of London's students.
