'Facing neither left or right, we face forward'

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 all political persuasions from Tories to members of the Monster Raving Loony Party. 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 many more. 

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

Last year also saw the third volume of the University of Sussex Politics Journal which will be continued this year.

As well as inciting debate we also aim to unite those interested in politics through socials including quiz nights, pub crawls, club nights and an exclusive graduation ball! You’ll get the chance to meet lots of new people and have a great time!

This year we have some amazing events lined up... and we’re going to set things off with a bang!
