The Politics Society exists to help all students interested in Politics, we offer a wide range of activities and opportunities. If you are interested in a subject you can join our discussions, and suggest a topic to discuss either in an open forum or by inviting speakers. Not only that, we aim to improve the employability of our members by offering opportunities to make them more attractive to employers. We operate on a neutral platform as we want everyone to be able to voice their opinion and to have a pluralistic society that revolves around all parties and political views.
We meet every Thursday at 7:00pm in the Government Common Room (but this varies according to the event, so keep updated with our social media). Our discussions range from a range of topics from the Palestine-Israel conflict to Gun Control and the Future of the Monarchy; and we host guest speakers such as MPs, politicians and researchers to cover elections, local and international politics.
For just £5 you can have access to all our activities and services which include:
