About us

We are the society about Europe and the EU. Founded in 2012, we provide a forum for debate and discussion on all aspects of the EU, Europe, its states and peoples.

We are an academic society – the society itself doesn’t take views on these issues. Instead, our aim is to foster an environment where students can express their opinions, debate these topics and learn more about them.

We welcome all viewpoints and our events cover all areas and topics. Whatever your interest or expertise, there’s a place for you in the society.

We put on a range of activities, including panel discussions, lectures, debates, forums and conferences, in addition to social events. We have hosted Scottish Government ministers, Members of the Scottish Parliament, Members of the European Parliament, ambassadors, academics, students and campaigners.

Feel free to come along to our events! If you have questions, you can email us. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events!
