Welcome to the University of Essex and to the Debating Society


The Debating Society tries to help and strengthen your debating, speaking, and reasoning skills in a fun and interesting manner. No matter if you are a skilled debater who has attended competitions or a total novice just wanting to try out something new, you are welcome at the society.


We have a meeting every Monday at 7pm in LTB1. We engage most commonly in the British Parliamentary debating style. However, from time to time we enagage in styles like: Mace debating, Oxford style, and large group discussions. We have debates on current affairs, ethical issues, and much more. Outside of our weekly meetings we are a fun, friendly, and active society with regular socials.


We plan to attend a number of formal debating competitions this year, hopefully catering to all levels of experience and ability.
