Politics Students Association

Politics Students Association

Kia Ora!

POLSA was established in 2017 by a group of students who recognized the lack of support and intra-departmental communication facing political students. We believe that our university experience can be enriched by an association of politics student volunteers working together to facilitate this support.

Our membership includes political science students and other students who have an interest in politics generally. We host an array of social and academic events, to encourage socialisation and engagement in politics by the student population. 

Each year POLSA hosts Beerhive, a social event aimed to engage new members, quiz nights, and a Wine and Cheese. In 2021, POLSA also hosted a Women's Breakfast, various academic talks and ran a mentorship programme between first-year and older politics students. 

POLSA members get a discount at our events and membership is open to all students, so if you're interested, register below and give us a like on our Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up to date with our events!
