Are you someone who loves getting stuck into arguments?

Perhaps your public speaking skills need honing?

Do you relish discussing important and controversial topics?


If you found yourself answering yes to any of the above, then we are the society for you.


Whether you want to improve your public speaking skills, compete against other universities in debates or negotiations, or simply join other students in discussing any topic you can imagine, you'll be very welcome at the University of Surrey Debating Society!



Each week we have a session with an icebreaker and debate, sometimes we host workshops, public debates or  more social activities.

Our debates are fun to watch, and even more fun to take part in. Motions are varied, passions are ignite and the rule of three is well utilized! 

After each session we usually go to the pub for some drinks, milkshakes and more conversations!
