About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. To be a present and effective leftist and progressive movement on campus and in Exeter city
  2. To educate on the values and practices of socialism
  3. To educate people how they can make a difference and fight for equality and liberty
  4. To defend those who need defending

Exeter Socialist Students is a non-affiliate poltical society that aims to aid students and workers and fight for social justice. As a non-denominational leftist group, we aim to be an inclusive safe space for all – regardless of your political position. So whether you’re a diehard anarchist, hardcore Marxist or a fresh-faced Corbynite, we’re the society for you.

We enjoy strong links with societies and organisations interested in activism and social justice, such as Feminist Society, Friends of Palestine and Labour Students, and often support their campaigns and events however we can. Our society participates regularly in campus politics, ranging from activity on the Guild council to demonstrations and debates, with a recent example being helping to organise the protest against Debating Society inviting Katie Hopkins to speak at an event in February 2019. We have also hosted events on the importance of issues such as tackling the rise of fascism and union membership among young people, hosted talks on the histories of regions such as Yemen and Northern Ireland, and invited guest speakers from organisations such as Unite the Union, ACORN, Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament and Extinction Rebellion, encouraging people to get more educated and more involved outside of student politics. 
Our society was also pivotal in the formation of Exeter Students Support the UCU Strikes, who supported their teachers & lecturers on the picket lines and occupied the university's administration building for 11 days in solidarity in March of 2018.

We have events every Wednesday in terms 1 and 2, after which we always head to the Ram for discussion. As a political society, we feel that we can offer a lot to all students, regardless of their politics, and we hope to see you soon!
