Who are Labour Students?

Labour Students is the official, autonomous student wing of the Labour Party in the UK. We organise at universities and colleges, in Students’ Unions and the National Union of Students, campaigning for Labour’s values of equality and social justice.

How does Plymouth Labour Students fit in?

Plymouth Labour Students is the local branch of Labour Students, affiliated with Labour Students, UPSU and Plymouth Labour. We work both on and off campus to bring about positive changes for students and the wider community, both via campaigning in elections and supporting other campaigns.

What we do

Our society works to provide members with an exciting route into politics, and a range of opportunities to engage with local politicians and national campaigns so that they can play a part in changing Plymouth, Britain and the World. We also offer a space for left-wing Labour supporting students to meet and discuss politics, and a way for all students to interact with politics in a way they may not have before.

Events and Socials

We hold regular socials and events for our members. They include:

  • Pints and Politics - An evening set aside in a pub to meet and have a chat about politics, university and general life
  • Pizza and Politics - Similar to Pints and Politics, but with Pizza!
  • Society Policy Debates - Sometimes disagree about policy. These events are the opportunity to have your voice heard by other Labour Supporters
  • Talks and meetings with Labour MPs, MEPs and Cllrs
  • Talks and information sessions with other groups - Like Trade Unions, Co-operative Party (Labour's Sister Party) and more
  • Student-led campaigning - both on and off campus

The above is just a snapshot of our standard activity - for more details about our events and socials please visit facebook.com/plymlabstudents
