About WUDC

This Tournament is the world’s largest debating competition, and one of the largest annual international student events in the world. The inaugural Championship was hosted by the Glasgow University Union in January 1981, with 43 teams from 7 nations competing. Since then it has dramatically grown to an event that hosts over 400 teams(each comprised of two students), representing more than 380 universities from 80 different nations. 

Students from the World’s best universities regularly compete. Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Stanford, Monash, Sydney and dozens of other world class institutions send their best students. As a result, being crowned ‘World Champion’ is one of the most prestigious titles a student can attain. 


This is a unique opportunity for Korean students to interact with the international debating community, to engage in debates of issues of global importance, and to develop their communication and critical thinking skills.
