Debate Society is dedicated to creating a welcoming and sociable environment which encourages free speech, discussion, and the development of argumentative and public speaking skills, for everyone!
QMBL Debate Society is one of the most active and social societies on campus, presenting a fun and interesting environment that anyone is welcome to come along and take part in. We meet twice a week for debates and discussions designed for everyone to be able to participate and contribute. Our society is the perfect place to build and develop effective communication skills that will be valuable throughout your life, within university and afterwards. If you find yourself struggling with presentations, tested by interviews or just feeling like improving your ability to get your point across in conversation, the Debate Society is the best place to get help and practice in these vital areas.
We're a large society that holds regular social events and maintains a friendly environment, and also provides opportunities to meet your fellow students and get to know them. There's plenty of room for conversation both within sessions and outside, in the pub or other organised socials we hold throughout the year.
While this year is going to be a bit different, we are striving to ensure that all the same opportunities are available. For the moment, sessions will be held online via MS Teams. Follow us on the social media above for up-to-date information.
