UCPOLS is a non-partisan, faculty supported University Society dedicated to providing a forum for all things political.
Founded in 2011, UCPOLS encourages students and youth to become politically informed and active members of their community. As the student representatives to the School of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Canterbury, we act as a conduit between students, academics, and politicians.
UCPOLS offers a wide range of opportunities to engage in politics across the local, national, and international spectrum. Members enjoy exclusive access to a wide range of events, from seminars and guest speakers, to round-table panels and debates, to quiz nights and wine & cheese evenings.
