We had an impressive 1227 votes for NUS Delegate and 1427 of you voted in our preferendum on whether we should boycott the National Student Survey.

Click on each of their names above to find out more about the reasons they will be joining Guild President Sean Turner and going to NUS National Conference in April next year. As part of the conference, students’ unions can submit ideas for NUS to adopt and work on over the next year - so if you have any student issues you think NUS should work on, head over to our change it page to submit them now under NUS Conference.
In our second vote the student body have convincingly voted in support of boycotting the National Student Survey.
A preferendum is an all-student vote where there are three or more choices – allowing you to choose your favourite option, your top two or rank all three in order of preference. The voting system used a Modified Borda Count, which assigned points to each option based on the order of preference.
There were a total of 2697 points in support of a campaign to boycott, with 1228 opposed and 2115 for the suggestion that the boycott only be approved with a satisfactory risk/ equality impact assessment from NUS.
The Guild Officers will be meeting with staff and students to take this idea forward next week. If you are interested in getting involved in this campaign please email email@example.com
