Join Warwick Politics Society for a fantastic year of high-profile guest speakers and a diverse range of social events. You can get involved in radio and print journalism, attend the Politics Ball, and play for our football team. We are a politically-neutral society, welcoming members from across the political spectrum and across the University of Warwick – there is no need to study Politics.

Discuss, debate and discover with us!

Mentoring Scheme

First year students in the Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS) can be paired up with a second or third year student who did the same modules. If you have any questions about your course, module choices, or life at Warwick, they can be your go-to person. With planned activites throughout the year, you can build a relationship with someone who's already gone through it all. Sign up at the Societies Fair.

 

High-profile Guests

Throughout the year, we host guest speakers from political and extra-political backgrounds for panel debates and guest lectures. Hear from leading politicians, diplomats, activitists, journalists and political commentators. Some of recent guests include Peter Hitchens, George Eaton, Baroness D'Souza, Carne Ross, Sir Steve Webb, Sharlina Hussain-Morgan, and Stephen Kinnock MP. We invite you to give your views and pose questions to our special guests.

 

Socials

We have a packed schedule of social events throughout the year, such as movie nights, society meals, and the infamous circling before POP!. Warwick Politics Society is a place to discover politics, but we also love to have a good time and meet new people.

 

Perspectives Magazine and Radio Show

If you are looking to get involved in journalism or just fancy sharing your ideas, you should consider getting involved with Perspectives – the home of student political commentary. We publish a termly edition of the magazine – with articles regularly published online – and host a biweekly radio show on RAW 1251AM.

 

The Politics Ball

The Politics Ball is a flagship event in the University of Warwick social calendar. Put on your formalwear and join Warwick Politics Society for an evening of good food, good refreshments and good company. Tickets will go on sale at the start of Term 1.

 

Domestic and International Tour

Most of our activities take place in and around Warwick, but we also host a domestic and international tour. Take a break from university life and explore the world with us. Past international tour locations have included Dublin, Budapest, Amsterdam, and Brussels (of course!). This year's locations are yet to be announced, but watch out for more information during Welcome Week.

 

Sports

Our eleven-a-side football team, PolSoc FC, compete against other societies from Warwick Students' Union. If you are interested in playing for the team, get in touch with our Sports Officer, Liam Burke. For the big matches against our rival teams, come along and watch the action unfold with other members of the Society.
