Conferences

Every year we send students to a variety of conferences in both the United Kingdom and Wales, below you can find out more information on how you are represented at said conferences. 

Case Study: Cardiff University Students' Union LGBT+ Delegates make the NUS LGBT+ Campaign more accessible
It was the work of the CUSU NUS LGBT+ delegation that meant the NUS campaign changed to include those who define as Transgender and also those under the umbrella of '+' (which is any other community that is associated with the LGBT community)
