NUS Scotland Conference

This year NUS enters it's 98th year and NUS Scotland celebrates its 50th anniversary. We’ve clarified a new purpose, to deliver focused high impact campaigns that win for students. 

This year’s Scotland Conference will be high energy, impactful campaigning space - moving away from reacting to the symptoms, and going after the root causes instead.

The focus of this year’s conference will be on the next steps in our #StudentsDeserveBetter campaign. We’ll also be spending time mobilising and organising around the upcoming Scottish Parliamentary elections. The conference will have a focus on NUS Scotland's campaigning work which you can read about on our website

The conference will take place online

As a conference attendee you can expect:
1.    Spaces where you can build your networks and connections, 
2.    Meaningful involvement in shaping the next steps of our campaigns
3.    Chances to grow your own campaigning skills to take action.

It doesn’t end with conference either. We are building communities of activists to continue to be actively involved in our campaigns.Before, during and after conference we’ll also be working together to shape what NUS will be vocal and visible on. These sessions will be part of conversations to continue to shape, grow and develop the campaigning priorities for our movement in the future Read more here.

In addition we’ll be electing Scottish Steering Committee members at conference. Read more about elections here
