Roar! has joined forces with student media outlets from across the country to provide coverage of the NUS National Conference 2012. The National Student Journalism Network has brought together journos from as far afield as Aberdeen, Manchester, Loughborough, and London.

What is the NUSNC? Well, this is the meeting where unions across the country come together, and vote on motions which determine the direction of the national movement for the year ahead; and they’ll also be choosing their President, and Vice Presidents while they’re at it. Incumbent President Liam Burns will face opposition from many of his NUS Vice President colleagues – and the heat is on!

President of KCLSU, Hannah Barlow, is at the Conference with 6 other students representing King’s: VPAA Simi Smith, Dele Akinyemi, Matt Williamson, and Samir Karnik Hinks. Together with student council they decided on King’s priority motions for the conference, which include ‘saving EMA’, ‘introducing an NUS London representative’, and ‘twinning with Egyptian universities’.
