The Debating Society has had an exceptionally good year so far with more members than in the previous two years combined. We’ve sent a multitude of members to IVs every weekend, both in and outside of London. We’re even sending a SOAS team to represent us at the World Universities Debating Championship (WUDC) being held in Malaysia later this month. If you are a beginner who hasn’t yet attended our training workshops, it’s not too late to get involved!
Debating Training Workshops
With a brief hiatus in the month of December due to essay deadlines and Christmas break, we will be resuming workshops in January. Don’t forget to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join our mailing list and be kept up to date about upcoming workshops and tournaments.
SOAS Schools Tournament
On 10th January 2015 SOAS Debating Society will be hosting one of the largest tournaments in the UK for secondary school students at our Vernon Square campus. With a 120 teams attending, we need all the help we can get to help us organise and run things smoothly on the day. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email addressed to Nicola Farrar, the convenor of this competition, at email@example.com.
