We pride ourselves at Debate Society on being well known on campus for providing a great opportunity to make new friends and engage in a broad range of discussions whilst considering a wide variety of viewpoints. We welcome students to join us from any course and any stage of study - no matter your experience, you're welcome at Debate Society.
This year we will be hosting sessions every Thursday evening at 6pm on campus in Rolle 115. Sessions typically run from 6pm to 8pm where members can debate on different topics that have been pre-selected by members ahead of each session. Our topics vary weekly but can include politics, science, international affairs and even conspiracy theories. We also try to hold themed Debates every so often to mix things up and let members loose on something a bit different. Whilst we officially end at 8pm, we welcome our members to continue on to the pub afterwards for a drink and a chat.
We try to keep things relatively informal so members can contribute as much or as little as they would like during a given session. There is no pressure to speak so you’re welcome to come and listen for a few sessions if you don’t feel up to speaking right away.
If you’ve picked up a membership, make sure you head over to Facebook and join our members-only group!
As well as weekly debates, we also have a lot more to offer for 2022-2023 such as...
