Welcome to the official website of Edinburgh Political Union


EPU is one of the oldest and largest societies at the University of Edinburgh. We have a proud tradition of hosting distinguished speakers from the arenas of politics, diplomacy, activism and media and from across the political spectrum.

Apart from speaker events we provide a link between student and staff of the Politics and International Relations Department and host current affairs debates, film screening, excursions, social gatherings and career workshops as well as produce Leviathan, our politics and current affairs journal.
