University of York Debating Society (Debate Soc)

We provide weekly debate training (mainly British Parliamentary style) to help our members improve their debating skills and become more effective communicators. Debating also provides a friendly but competitive space that raises the standards of our members by simulating conditions at actual competitions. We support our members who wish to participate in competitions in other universities in the UK and around the world, as well as setting up debates within the university with other societies, although participation in competitions is by no means compulsory. For those not interested in competitive debating, sessions allow casual activities where you can either participate in or observe debates, or just take part in our discussions each week. We also hold socials for our members.

Your first two sessions are free, but, after that, paid membership is mandatory: so don't forget to pay using the link below!
