Competitions

UCL Debating Society prides itself from being particularly competitively active, and sends teams of debaters across the UK to compete on behalf of the society almost every week of the term (including holidays!). Teams will be selected by the Training Officers, and will be funded up to £40 per team per competition (exclusive of transportation). Every member who is interested are guaranteed a chance to go to at least one tournament.

For complete details about the competitions we are attending this term, including links to sign up to represent UCL, please keep an eye out on our Facebook page.
