PIR: Politics and International Relations

Chat with us

About us

Hello and welcome to Royal Holloway’s Politics and International Relations Society!

There are many ways to be active on campus and PIRSoc is just one of them! PIRSoc is an excellent way to meet likeminded individuals and gage a greater sense of community at University!

From jet setting to New York to participate in an annual diplomatic conference, and practicing diplomacy in the heart of London, to watching politically inspired films of an evening and hosting prestigious talks and debates – there is truly something for everyone.

And everyone is welcome, you don’t need to be studying politics.


PIRSoc is an academic and social society, run by students, with close links to the PIR Department at Royal Holloway. We strive to provide a variation of academic and social events, with the hope that all our members feel included and engaged.

Purchasing a membership to our society will give you access to all of our various events, trips, and activities! The society arranges a series of academic events throughout the year including keynote speakers, panel discussions and seminars.

We further organise events looking at giving opportunities for students to work on developing their professional pursuits and abilities. Though we work hard, we play even harder!

PIRSoc hosts a range of social events from screening films or going to the pub to more upscale events such as dinners, Society Balls, and the famous PIR Boat Party!
