HELLO FROM POLIS!
 

The POLIS society is the social hub for all students within the School of Politics and International Studies.

If you are studying Politics, Politics and Parliamentary Studies, International Relations, International Development or any joint honours with these, then this society is for you!

Given the small number of contact hours, the POLIS society is a key outlet for making friendships within the school.

We are @PolisSoc on Twitter and Instagram.  Join 'The Official LUU POLIS Society’ and add PolisSoc on Facebook for updates and information on events from this term!

You will receive access to:

  • A range of regular exciting socials. We have loads of sponsorship deals with clubs in Leeds, so nights out will always be affordable!
  • Opportunites to go on trips both in the UK and abroad at discounted prices!  (e.g London/ Barcelona)
  • Membership to our fantastic rugby, football, and netball teams
  • Comprehensive careers advice and opportunities
  • Relevant and contemporary talks by leading public figures

 

FRESHERS FAIR 

Want to know what POLIS is all about? Want to hear about all the exciting trips and socials we have have planned?

Come down to the Freshers Fair on Wednesday 21st Septemeber from 11am to 4pm, we will be in the Riley Smith Theatre and the outisde Marquee.
Afterwards we will be heading to Terrace, so feel free to come, grab a drink and get to know us better!

Lots of love,
Martha, Catie, Amy, Imran, Edie and WIll xxxxx
