The PPE Society is a student-run academic society with over 800 members - and that's almost three times the number of people studying the course! We aim to engage with anyone who has an interest in any of our disciplines, bringing them together in one diverse, dynamic, and extremely active society.
Our prestigious speaker series hosts a diverse range of speakers on contemporary topics. Prominent speakers to have joined us include former Conservative MP and Junior Health Minister Edwina Currie, BBC Economist and Journalist Evan Davis and BBC Radio 4 and Mock the Week satirist Rory Bremner, to name but a few.
The PPE Forum addresses pressing societal issues through the medium of discussion. A panel of experts is invited to debate and scrutinize topics, which in the past have included the EU, corruption in policymaking and charity & philanthrocapitalism.
Finding ones feet in the world beyond university is no easy task. The PPE Society collaborate with firms from a range of industries to provide an excellent support network for students looking to gain experience. This year, we are delighted to be working with Royal Bank of Scotland, Royal Bank of Canada, Headstart recruitment, TeachFirst and Compass news.
Our socials are a fantastic way to meet fellow students. From nights out in Leamington and Birmingham to ice-skating in Coventry, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
In term 2 we host the annual PPE Ball, open to all society members. The ball is a glamorous night of formality, food, drink and entertainment. It is a wonderful way to celebrate the year, unwind before exams and say goodbye to the finalists.
Tours give you the chance to pack your bags and leave campus for the weekend. In term 1 we run our UK-based domestic tour, and in term 2 we go overseas in our international tour. Previous locations for domestic include Cardiff, Bristol and Brighton; for international we have visited Berlin, Prague, Copenhagen and more.
PPE Society runs intramural Football and Netball teams that compete against other societies. Football teams play on Wednesday and Saturday, and include both 5 a side and 11 a side. Our netball team, launching this year, play in the weekend league. If you want to get involved, join the facebook groups through the links below and contact Tom Westgarth (football captain) or Martha Kirk (netball captain) via Facebook.
This year we will be working with Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre as well as Mind mental health. We're looking to raise over £1000 for charity this year and are looking for volunteers - get in touch!
Looking forward to a fantastic year,
Your PPE Exec
