The prestigious World University Debating Championships (“WUDC”) have been hosted in different countries around the world since 1981. WUDC is the world’s largest debating tournament, with an estimated 1000-1500 participants attending. The 43rd WUDC in Madrid is the first time it is back in person after COVID.

The tournament runs over one week and is the highest level of debate competition. Debaters will compete against teams from universities around the world and aim to progress to the finals.

SWORDS will be sending 2 teams and 2 adjudicator’s. We are hoping to match the success of our online Belgrade WUDC team who reached the Octofinals in July – the furthest UOW has ever progressed! Teams are selected via a trial’s process. Follow us on fb for further info.

This event will be held at La Salle Maravillas Private School, Madrid, Spain
