Liberation Campaigns

The Students' Association support four Liberation Campaigns for Disabled Students, LGBT Students, BME Students and Women Students studying at GCU.

These campaigns exist to represent the interests of the students who define themselves as belonging to them and to fight against discrimination wherever it takes place.

If you have any questions about our Liberation groups, please contact aimee.cuthbert@gcustudents.co.uk


NUS Liberation Conferences

Each year we send students from our Liberation Groups to represent GCU at Scottish and UK level conferences within the National Union of Students. These events set the national policy for these Liberation Campaigns and elect their national leadership. The Students' Association covers all expenses associated with attending these events.

This year we will be sending delegates to all NUS Scotland Liberation Conferences, all taking place at the Norton Park Conference Centre in Edinburgh. If you are interested in going to one of the conferences, see below for the date of the conference and who to contact to put yourself up to be a delegate:
