An important part of what we do is being competitive on the national and international debating circuits.

We regularly take our speakers to tournaments across the country, Europe and the world. At these tournaments you will debate against speakers from other universities, this is the best way to improve your skills.

It also means that you have the opportunity to visit lots of new places with your friends, which is fun. We have sent teams to places like Ireland, Botswana, & Turkey.

The Union

The Aberystwyth Debating Union was founded in 1872, and meets weekly to foster the use of debate as a means of exploring ideas.

Qui tacet, consentire videtur.
