Each year, MDX students have the opportunity to become one of several delegates attending the annual National Union of Students’ (NUS) conferences - the National Conference and Liberation Conference.
These conferences give students from across the country the chance to steer the work of NUS representing over 7 million students across the United Kingdom, making changes which improve the lives of students nationwide. Being an NUS Delegate is an amazing opportunity to shape these changes, represent Middlesex on the national stage and meet students from across the country. Attending the conference is free, and accommodation and travel is covered by MDXSU.
National Conference is the main policy-making body of NUS, bringing together nearly a thousand delegates from Students' Unions across the country to discuss, debate and vote on motions and elect the political leadership of NUS for the years ahead.
MDXSU is a member of NUS and is entitled to send six delegates to National Conference. Your MDXSU President automatically becomes the lead delegate, with five positions available for other elected student delegates. The six delegates are decided through an election, with at least 50% of our delegation being made up of self-defining women (as per NUS policy).
Your National Conference Delegates for 2021 are:

Liberation Conference is an opportunity for student activists from across the country to build campaigns, make policy and discuss issues affecting students from Liberation Groups.
To attend this conference or vote in the elections, students must self-identify into the available delegate positions, and also must be a member of the relevant MDXSU Liberation Group.
