Who we are

The University of Sussex Politics Society is a student run, event organising group and forum for discussion for students and staff of Sussex University. We welcome people from all parties and persuasions; from Labour and The Conservatives to UKIP and the Monster Raving Loony Party.

What we do

We aim to create an environment were people can explore and express their ideas and opinions whilst providing the opportunity for open debate! In the past the society has hosted events with high profile speakers such as David Lammy, Mark Serwotka, Caroline Lucas, Lord Neil Kinnock, Linda Bellos and many more.

As well as facilitating debate we bring politics students together with non-academic socials including quiz nights, pub crawls, club nights and an exclusive graduation ball! You’ll get the chance to meet like-minded people and have a great time!

Get involved

This year we meet every week for POLITICS WEDNESDAYS from 4-6pm in Freeman Centre G22 and host talks, debates, watch movies, discuss current events and go for a drink afterwards!

We'll be at this year's freshers fair so stop by and talk to us about the society and how you can get involved.

We also produce a yearly politics journal showcasing the best essays from politics students. Anyone can submit an essay marked above 65% for a chance to be published. Download the 2017 edition HERE.
