About Politics Society
The Politics Society is here to help you learn about the important issues of our time, directly from the world-leading politicians, diplomats and activists who shape them.
Due to COVID-19, our membership is REDUCED to just £5 for THIS TERM ONLY! You'll get exclusive benefits including early access to events and private drinks receptions with speakers, early access to tickets for trips in Second Term to the Houses of Parliament, the Supreme Court and the Bank of England, careers events, and discounted tickets to the Politics Ball!
Our diverse, unique and free-to-attend speaker events have made us the reigning back-to-back winners of the Guest Speaker of the Year Award at Sussex, and recipients of the National Politics Society of the Year award. We heard candid stories and insights from speakers including the President of Azad Kashmir, the activist Gina Miller, the South Korean Ambassador, a former Archbishop of Canterbury, and former Deputy Prime Minister Lord Michael Heseltine
But that’s last year. What about this year?
Well, you can find out how to survive in the Age of Fake News with BBC journalist Evan Davis. You can learn what a No-Deal Brexit means from a former Leader of the Conservative Party, or join us for a Q&A with Labour MP Jess Phillips. Discover how to win a war in the 21st century from a US General, understand the current recession from a former Governor of the Bank of England. In Second Term, have the chance to meet Liberal Democrat legend Sir Vince Cable and find out if Britain is destined to be a 2 party state.
You can come to our virtual Murder Mystery Night, or our record-breaking pub quizzes. You can take part in virtual debates on the US Election, Free Speech, the Middle East, and others, or decide who you think will win between Donald Trump and Joe Biden in our US Presidential Election Panel. Join the biggest political society at Sussex for these events and much more!
Whether you are looking for debate, to socialise, or even to meet the occasional Prime Minister, the Society aims to bring something for everyone, so make sure you like our Facebook page to keep up to date with all of our events, and visit our LinkTree to see all the recorded events so far (https://linktr.ee/SussexPoliticsSociety).
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
