Join Politics Society and be part of the liveliest, spiciest political scene on campus. For high profile speakers, regular socials and trips to the Houses of Parliament, Supreme Court and beyond, look no further! We’ve got all that and more, for free, for everyone.

Who we are

We are a non-partisan group drawing students and staff from all political persuasions and academic backgrounds to enjoy discussion and debate in a calm and respectful environment. With weekly events and socials in and around campus, there’s something for everyone at Politics Society

What we do

Last year we were awarded Guest Speaker of the Year for our sellout event with Brexit Select Committee chair Hilary Benn MP, and Politics Society of the Year at the PSA’s annual conference. We were also fortunate to welcome a former UN Deputy Secretary General, and the sitting Indonesian Ambassador to the UK.

But the society is about more than politics. We were also joined by 120 students from across campus for a free BBQ, two pub quizzes and our smash hit Summer Ball, where over seventy of Sussex’s finest danced through the night with a live band and ample refreshments.

Get involved

If that sounded good, this year is going to be even better and we can’t wait to share it with you! Get your free membership today and follow the society on Facebook at facebook.com/suspolsoc for our event schedule and live updates.
