KSU in collaboration with Aġenzija Żgħażagħ and JCI Malta are proud to present the fourth edition of the Debate Society League on Campus!
This is YOUR opportunity to learn and practice debating skills in a formal and competitive setting. You will learn new techniques, develop debating strategies whilst defending your arguments successfully and in the end be crowned this edition's league winners!
Each team must be made up of 3 University students as per the Debating Rules.
For the second year, a compulsory training session will be held on the 19th of November in order to further increase the knowledge and understanding of the rules and the concept of the Debate Society League. An international speaker specialising in leadership and professional development will be flying in to administer this session. All teams must attend.
This year we are also introducing the concept of The Debate Society Mentors which is made up of a panel of mentors who will assist teams in their debating journey throughout this competition.
The first round of the league will be held towards the end of November and throughout the first period of the second semester. The format of the competition will eventually proceed to 'sudden death' in the second semester.
Each round will have a particular topic to debate but fear not; it is not about how much you know about the subject, but the way you are able to raise and defend your arguments.
THE PRIZES: The winning team will be awarded €500 and the runner-up team will be awarded €250! The winners will also have their glory preserved as their names will be engraved on our Debate Society League Champions Cup!
All participants who attend will be awarded a certificate. Those participants who also wish to opt for the Degree Plus Certificate, may do so subject to an extra €5 fee upon completion of the League.
