Introduction To the Division

The English Debating Division is one of the most powerful among others as we empower the members with the skills of expressing their beliefs and ideas clearly and concisely while staying aware of current affairs. It creates a comfortable environment to brush up the skills of logical argumentation of the members while ensuring that the undergraduates have the competency of addressing logical issues.
