The student officers are eight students, elected by the whole student population, who work full time at the Students' Union for a year.
What to speak up for Sheffield students within the NUS?
Sheffield Students' Union is a member of the National Union of Students and that means that our members have a right to have a say in how the NUS is run and what its priorities should be.
Each year the NUS holds a number of democratic conferences that decide its policies for the year ahead and select the Liberation Officers, Vice-Presidents and President.
Sheffield is represented at these conferences by our elected delegates. These are elected at the end of semester 1 each year.
NUS National conference is the highest decision making body in the NUS and is attended by over 1,200 delegates from every affiliated Students' Union in the country.
The Liberation & Sectional conferences make decisions in relation to specific groups of students and are semi-autonomous within the NUS.

To ask any questions about the role of NUS delegates or the elections please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students' Union Council is responsible for submitting policy to NUS National Conference. Any student can submit NUS policy proposals for Students' Union Council to discuss.
