The Debate & Public Speaking Academy is designed to enhance your speaking skills and take you to the next level of debating. It has been designed by a former World Universities Public Speaking semi-finalist. You'll cover different styles of debating, learn critical thinking and rhetorical techniques, learn more about the current affairs issues that underpin everyday debating, and get lots of practice at speaking.

On top of this, you'll get to participate in our International Diplomacy Challenge, and meet our Hero Tom who is a young barrister from London and learn more about how he uses his debating skills as part of his career. Finally, you'll get the opportunity to debate at the world-famous Oxford Union, where figures such as Churchill and Reagan have spoken.
