FRESHERS 2020-21

First things first, congratulations on being accepted into the University of Warwick! We understand that you have all worked incredibly hard to make it to this point and we are excited to welcome you into our Society. Warwick PolSoc invites you to become part of the political community at Warwick and has something to offer students from every academic discipline to ease settling into university life.
 
WHY JOIN WARWICK POLITICS SOCIETY?

 

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

are looking for large scale social events, from pub golf to club nights, or

engaging academic events with high profile names, we have something to

cater for you. Alongside these types of events, we have a newly established

careers branch of the Society to assist with all your LinkedIn-associated

needs.

 

Each year we host the Politics Ball, a formal event for around 200 students.

This is an excellent opportunity to dress up for the night and celebrate your

academic successes or new friendships over a three-course meal in a classy 

venue.

 

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.

 

In the event political writing is not up your street, we have Football and Netball teams

which play in the societies league each year. This is a great way to play a team sport

in a casual setting and stay fit whilst at uni!

 

Last but definitely not least, at Warwick PolSoc we work hard to support local and

national charities. Last year we supported Mind, a leading mental health charity, as

well as Movemeber and raised a grand total of over £2500. 

 

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

 

To kick off your involvement with Warwick PolSoc, make sure to follow our social media platforms. 

All our event information and updates are shared through these platforms, so this is absolutely

key to ensuring you don’t miss out!

 

In Freshers Week 2020, make sure to attend our events and stands on the Piazza to

get to know our Executive Team and more about what we do. We look forward to

speaking to you all and we promise we are not in the slightest intimidating!

 

Purchase your Society Membership! At PolSoc, we ask for a small £2 sum to cover

your membership. This is critical in funding our events and maintaining the quality of

your experience as a PolSoc member.

 

During your time at Warwick, you will be able to write for Perspectives, so be sure to

follow the Perspectives Facebook page and join their Writers’ Group to hear about

pitches. 

 

Providing COVID-19 permits, you will be able to join our sports teams and play

weekly matches for Warwick PolSoc. To get involved here, you can take part in trials

at the start of the academic year.

 

Finally, to make the most out of your PolSoc experience, we strongly recommend you attend every

event throughout the year which interests you. The Society has so much to offer and is a great

opportunity to meet new, like-minded individuals.
