The Leiden Debating Union is always looking for new partners.

The members of the Leiden Debating Union are among the smartest students in the world, and debating makes them even smarter. Debating trains various skills, such as creative thinking, public speaking, argumentation and problem solving. That makes our debaters prime candidates for internships, jobs or think tanks.

If you, or your company, is interested in the talents of our fantastic students, don’t hesitate to contact us for information by contacting the president or at our general email info(at)leidendebatingunion.nl.


The Leiden Debating Union also offers trainings and workshops. European Champions, World’s Finalists and more can come to give one or more workshops at your society, school, company or political party. We’ve given workshops on numerous topics, such as ‘pitching’, public speaking, debating, argumentation or presentation.

If you’re interested in such a workshop, or if you’re wondering whether we might be able to facilitate something else, please send an email to our external officer.
