About Us

At Northumbria Debating Society we pride ourselves on our inclusive environment, giving you the chance to discuss and debate the big issues of today. Whether it’s learning how to express your views confidently, or wishing to develop sophisticated arguments we provide the friendly but competitive space to do it. 


We provide debate training sessions every Tuesday in CCE1 003 (Northumbria's Business and Law School) at 6pm-8pm. Our debates are carefully prepared by our Training Officer every week designed to be accessible and inclusive regardless of your skill level. With topics ranging from contemporary political issues to our seasonal comedic ones. We debate in British Parliamentary style and offer training for varying levels of ability, including beginner, intermediate, and competitive. 


Socials are after every weekly training session and are held at Nancy’s Bordello just a 5-minute walk from Northumbria’s Law school. 

So come along...

We’d greatly encourage anybody interested in debating to come along to our Tuesday training sessions. Regardless of your age, background, or ability, we aim to provide a welcoming, positive, and safe atmosphere for all students. 


Every Tuesday, 6pm-8pm, Room CCE1-003, Northumbria Business and Law School.
