Debating Union

Open to all Nottingham University students, our society offers opportunities for anyone with an interest in debating to cultivate a talent for public speaking, compete in national and international competitions and to enjoy socials with like minded students.

Catering for all abilities, our weekly training sessions will develop and improve debating skills that will give our members the edge in job interviews, dissertations and presentations. We ensure all training sessions are relatively informal and fun whilst building useful skills.

During term-time we hold public debates with member speakers only and one public debate every term with notable speakers from outside the society speaking on controversial and topical subjects. Recent public debates have included the role of faith schools in modern society and the impact of reality television.
