Info For Participating Students

Your role in the conference

Representing opinions from both sides of the channel, your team will participate in the conference activities in two ways:

  1. As an audience during the keynote speeches by our distinguished speakers
  2. As debaters and participants in the round table session and the three debates that will happen over the weekend (refer to the conference schedule)

The aim of the conference is to allow a congregation and discovery of the ideas and opinions of speakers and students from both sides of the channel.

Each debate will involve 4 members from each team. Teams will be randomly made so that students from different universities are together. There will be 2 debate rooms, in which 4 teams will debate each other in a British Parliamentary Style debate. Motions have been set by the organisers although the side that each team will take will only be made known once all registrations have been received and confirmed.

Awards will be given out for Best Speaker and Best Team during the debates.

Conference Fee

In order to help cover the operating costs for the conference, a conference fee of £15 per person will be required for each registered participant. Please note that the conference is FREE for Imperial College students. This fee goes to covering costs of equipment and catering during the three conference days, as well as partially covering publicity costs.


Registration will be done online with the form on this webpage. Once we receive your registration, we will generate an invoice using Google Checkout and email it to you, and upon receipt of your payment we will confirm your attendance at the conference via email.
