Welcome to the University of York Politics Society (PolSoc) website.

PolSoc prides itself as being a very approachable society and so we aim to involve as many different members as we can. We therefore hold a wide range of events, from hosting student debates and high profile speakers, as well as more social events like movie nights, pub quizzes and nights out.

If you’re a student studying Politics, Politics with International Relations, International Relations or any joint honors course with Politics, you are automatically a member of the society. PolSoc also welcomes all students of all academic areas, who are impassioned by politics, to come along to our events.

We are a Departmental society and not part of YUSU, therefore we don’t charge a membership fee. The Department is world recognized and boasts alumni like Harriet Harman MP, Greg Dyke (former Director General of the BBC), Peter Hitchens and Harry Enfield.

Whether you’re a prospective student or a current member, feel free to find out more here and get in touch. You can see what we have put on in the past here and what is up and coming.

See you all soon,

Sean Fullerton,

President of the University of York Politics Society
