Monday evening debates

Want to practice your public speaking skills and have some fun? You’re welcome to join and debate with us on Monday evenings.

At Monday evenings we organize two rounds of debating followed by a social drink. We usually use the British Parliamentary format, however we occasionally use American parliamentary, Australian Parliamentary and Eloquentia (comedic) debating as well. These evenings are guided by experienced debaters, who will judge you and give constructive feedback afterwards. They are held in T3-16, which you can find in the Mandeville Building by going up the escalator and turning right. Monday evenings are typically held every Monday, except during the holidays and summer break.

The schedule for the Monday evenings will generally look much like this:

  • 18:30 – Gather at T3-16 and sign up for the first debating round
  • 18:45 – Announcements
  • 19.00 – Motion #1
  • 19.15 – Debate 1
  • 20.45 – Motion # 2
  • 21.00 – Debate 2
  • 22.15 – Drinks at De Dijk!

Notice: Before 18:45 you have to be signed up otherwise you can not participate in the first debate.
