The UWA Politics Club was first registered with the Societies Council on the 4th December 1969.


Re-established in 2008, the UWA Politics Club runs a wide range of policy, social and educational events throughout the year for students who are interested or passionate about politics, government and current affairs. 

This has included running our widely-acclaimed Mock Parliaments, which bring students from a diverse range of political parties to debate the big and contentious of the day. We also run a series of debates and panel discussions each year, touching on topics including drug decriminalisation, human rights, an Australian republic, socialism versus capitalism and more. 

We are an independent, non-partisan club with nearly 300 members from all political persuasions and studying a wide range of disciplines.



The UWA Politics Club is governed by our Constitution, which sets out the structure, provisions and procedures for the management and operations of our Club.  In addition, affiliation with the UWA Student Guild, the Societies Council and the Public Affairs Council requires us to be in compliant with all relevant regulations. 

Our current Constitution was approved at our 2019 Annual General Meeting on the 18th October 2019 and came into force a few days later upon ratification by the Societies Council.
