Personal statement and manifesto not submitted.





Megan Dunn
Get It Dunn

Hi, I’m Megan Dunn, and I’m standing to be NUS President because I want to see a student movement that doesn’t just talk about liberation, collectivism and equality; but actually delivers on these values every single day. Education is a public good, it changes the lives of students and our communities for the better; we need a National Union that makes sure everyone can access a transformational education.

Leon French (Provisional)

Hello! My name is Leon French. I'm a born and bred Yorkshireman from Doncaster studying music at the University of Hull and I'm in my final year. I'm standing to be your NUS President so that I can make it a relevant organisation for students by putting more of a focus on student support, professionalising the NUS when dealing with Government and seeking a mandate from students by encouraging referenda on NUS membership for Student Unions across the country. I want an open, relevant and democratic NUS for all students.

Beth Redmond
Education for Liberation

I'm a 22 year old revolutionary socialist feminist from Merseyside. I currently live in London organising for both the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts and Workers' Liberty. I have spent the last year supporting activists on campuses across the country fight against tuition fees and for a liberated, democratic curriculum; the beginning of a new movement which saw 10000 students march in London in November. I have done all of this on no wage; if elected I will continue to build the movement and empower grass-roots activists all over the UK to fight for a fair, funded education system.
