Voted ‘Best Academic Society in 2020’ at the SU Awards, Warwick PolSoc is
widely recognised to be one of the best societies on campus. Whether you

engaging academic events with high profile names, we have something to
cater for you. Alongside these types of events, we have a newly established

We host an International Tour annually, involving a mini city break for you to spend quality
time withyour PolSoc peers and explore somewhere other than Leamington. We try to keep our Tour affordable to allow as many students to attend as possible.
Warwick Politics Society is also home to Perspectives, our political commentary
magazine. If you consider yourself to be an aspiring political journalist, or have any
kind of interest in political writing, this is a great way to get involved in the Society.

national charities. Last year we supported Mind, a leading mental health charity, as
well as Movemeber and raised a grand total of over £2500.
