The Cambridge Union is the globally renowned debating society of Cambridge. We run one of the most successful and inclusive competitive debating programmes in the world.

Over the last few years, the Cambridge Union Society has sustained an unprecedented level of success in debating, winning the European Championships, and excelling at the World Championships. We're also incredibly inclusive, sending significantly more teams to British competitions each year than any other debating society in the world, with a very significant proportion of which having no prior debating experience.

Debating at the Union offers you the chance to improve your public speaking skills, represent Cambridge at national and international competitions and become part of a global debating community, and have some unforgettable experiences. You do not need any previous debating experience to join us, so if you are interested, why not have a go?
