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.

PolSoc Paper

We also have our UoS PolSoc Paper open to all of those in PolSoc who are interested in journalism. We accept articles from all over the political spectrum which are reviewed collectively by members. If you're interested in Politics and want to write about it, get involved!


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!

We have a number of successful sports teams in the intramural leagues. Including Netball and Men's football and Women's Football, with both 6 aside and 11 aside teams. Whether you're a professional or a complete beginner, everyone is welcome to join the sport team of their choice. Plus each sports team organises their own socials!
