Each week we have an relaxed workshop developing debate skills, followed by a debate. Our workshops are a great way to develop your critical thinking, confidence and communication. Our debates are fun to watch, and even more fun to take part in. Motions are varied, passions are ignited, the rule of three is well utilised! :)



Are you someone who loves getting stuck into arguments?

Perhaps your public speaking skills need honing?

Do you relish discussing important and controversial topics?


This is the society for you!

Whether you want to improve your public speaking skills, compete with other university teams in the UK debating circuit, or simply join other students in discussing the issues that affect us all, you'll be very welcome at the University of Surrey Debating Society!

Sincerely Yours,

Surrey Debating Society Committee


Topics include anything you can think of, with a special emphasis on politics and current affairs We're an exceedingly friendly bunch and welcome everyone. 

Feel free to message the page or email us with any questions or queries!


 We like to go to the pub after a session for a relaxed chat and a drink (The milkshakes, oh the milkshakes!)
