VUSU are also affiliated with the National Union of Students (NUS) who work collaboratively with and support other student unions with the shared endeavor of standing up for the rights of students.

THE NATIONAL UNION OF STUDENTS

NUS is the peak representative body for Australian undergraduate university students. We seek to protect and advance the rights and interests of undergraduate students by working with campus-based student organisations, running actions and campaigns, and making sure the voices of students are heard by parliamentarians.

The National Union of Students highest decision making body is NUS National Conference held in December each year. Each affiliated campus elects delegates from the student body at their annual elections to attend and help determine the policy of NUS, as well as elect the National and State Office Bearers for the coming year.
