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! 
  • Prague this year! 

    Tickets are selling out fast, with over half of the tickets sold we recommend getting your deposits down ASAP!

    Follow the link https://invasion.com/ and type in our unique trip code ‘LEEDSPOL’ to book your place!

  • Membership to our fantastic football and netball teams
  • Comprehensive careers advice and opportunities
  • Relevant and contemporary talks by leading public figures
