Every year, MDX students have the opportunity to become one of several NUS Delegates attending the annual National Union of Students conferences throughout the year.
These conferences give student leaders from across the country the chancey to steer the work of the NUS - which represents all 7 million students in the UK - and make changes which could 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 Middlesex Students' Union.
Conferences include the NUS National Conference, and liberations conferences for Trans Students' Conference, Women Students' Conference, Black Students' Conference, Disabled Students' Conference, LGBT+ Students' Conference, Sections Conference (including Parents and Carers, Postgraduate and Mature and Part-Time), and International Students' Conference.
