The Oxford University Conservative Association is possibly the largest student political society in Western Europe. We are the official branch of the Conservative Party within the University, and our aim is to promote Conservatism whilst providing an open forum for students to shape and express their ideas.

We are known for our extremely popular weekly "Port and Policy" debating event, but there is much more to OUCA than that, and every week of term we have a packed schedule: we take great pride in our in charity work and social action, aimed especially at helping the homeless population in Oxford; we go campaigning in constituencies around the country, we host speaker events with all the big names in Conservative politics, and we put on a full calendar of quality social events.

Whether you're a true blue Tory, a proud Labourite, or anything in between, the chances are that there will be something on our termcard for you, and politically interested students of all stripes attend and enjoy our events every week of term. Politics is not just about promoting and acting upon your own beliefs, but considering the views of others, and we especially value open-mindedness and a willingness to debate political ideas. So whether you want to get stuck in on the campaign trail, hear speeches from prominent ministers, or just meet new faces at our socials, OUCA is well worth your time.

If you have any questions about OUCA, our activities, or anything pertaining to Conservatism within Oxford University, I wholeheartedly encourage you to get in touch.
