Politics Society

Our society is one of the best ways politics students can get to know each other, settle into student life and enhance their university experience.

Pocket Politics Podcast

Pocket Politics delivers honest discussions and quick education on politics and governance in the UK and internationally. Join us every Friday where we aim to talk and educate (with the help of academics and politicians...) on topics that span across current affairs, economics, political philosophy, and more!

Pocket Politics Podcast

We have previously collaborated with big names in the world of politics such as Lord David Blunkett, Jesse Norman MP, and former U.S. National Security official, Fiona Hill. The podcast is run by our members, if you're interested in being a part of a political podcast PolSoc could be the place for you.

PolSoc Paper

Newspaper stand

This PolSoc member run Blog is an opportunity for political writers to have a space and domain that is completely theirs. Any University of Sheffield student can contribute to our growing online paper and we welcome articles on a wide range of topics as long as it relates to politics! 


We partner with a variety of academics, professionals, and alumni to bring our members exciting and insightful talks and workshops.

SPERI - Andrew Gamble

Some of our most recent talks have been on topics such as 'Can the Conservative party survive?' from british political researcher and emeritus Professor Andrew Gamble and 'Politics, policy, and the prime minister' from former advisor to Gordon Brown, Professor Michael Jacobs.

We work with other political societies to ensure we are offering dynamic events that reach everyone on the political spectrum. Our social secretaries work to expand the activities on offer, from nights out and dance events to fancy dinners and sober socials with absolutely no drinking initiations!
