INTERNATIONAL ROUNDS

Registration for our international regional rounds will open in the fall. For regions where there has been particular interest, there have been specific national/continental regional rounds already organised, but the online international rounds are open to debaters across the globe. These rounds are typically held in February, although specific dates are not finalized yet.

They are open to anyone aged 14-18 studying at a secondary educational institute outside the UK. Team members must be from the same school. There will be a registration fee of £50 per team.

We are confident that these rounds will produce extremely high-calibre debates and provide an invaluable learning experience for all students involved. Teams that perform the best in these regionals will also have the opportunity to compete in Finals Day, and have a chance to debate in the historic Oxford Union Chamber. 

If you would like us to bring an Oxford Schools' round to your country, please e-mail us. See the list of pre-existing international regionals below as well their hosts.
