Politics Society(PolySoc)

The QUB Politics Society, previously known as PolySoc, is proud to be one of the largest and fastest growing societies at Queen's. We welcome students from all backgrounds, with all kinds of political persuasion and provide them with a neutral base for intellectual debate and discussion - provided they are also up for making friends and having a bit of fun along the way. The society puts on an extensive calendar of social nights, film screenings, political events, debates, campaigns and many great nights worth of craic all year round.
Upcoming events include:

  • Debates
  • Guest lectures
  • Pub Crawls
  • Visit from the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland
  • Socials/Theme nights -Movie screenings
  • Pizza nights
  • Annual School Formal
  • BBC live recordings
  • Various Competitions
  • Trips to places of political interest (Brussels, anyone?)

As well as this, the President and executive members of the Society are elected and sit on the schools Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC) and Students' Union Council to ensure that students from the School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy are fully represented.

The 2015/16 team are President: Jordan White Vice-President: Shane Colton Treasurer: Lucie McCavana PR Manager: Jess Simonds
