This November, we’re electing Huddersfield’s delegates to NUS Conferences. We’re looking for people who want to speak on behalf of the Huddersfield student community, representing your fellow students on a national level. Not only that, but we want to support our delegates to speak up on a local level – running campaigns on campus about issues that are important to our students.

This is a great opportunity to help make a real change to the lives of students and meet like-minded students from across the country. We’ll cover the costs of your transport and accommodation, so it won’t impact on your pocket.

Nominations close on 12 November, and voting is from 20-22 November. When you look at the information about each position, you can find the dates of each conference.

When nominating please use Google Chrome as we have been experiencing problems with Internet Explorer, if you’ve got any questions, just email Freya at f.govus@hud.ac.uk.
