Come see us every Tuesday for training and every Thursday for a great public debate!
Welcome to the Manchester Debating Union
The Manchester Debating Union (MDU) is the home of free speech and debate for all Universities in Manchester. We hold public debates every week featuring high profile journalists, politicians and academics. Debates are on a wide range of topics; from Economics to Feminism, Philosophy to International Relations. We also hold Debating Workshops, giving our members the opportunity to build their debating skills and attend competitive debating competitions in both the UK and abroad.
Training takes place 5pm Tuesday in Samuel Alexander A7 (Classics Wing entrance). Public debates generally take place 5pm Thursday in the Roscoe Building in Lecture Theatre B. We predominantly use the mdunion Facebook group to relay information regarding events and competitions.
