The Wilberforce Society – The UK’s First and Leading Student Think Tank

Welcome to all incoming Freshers. Please visit our Freshers page and read our Chairman’s Welcome for more information.

The Wilberforce Society is the first student-run political think tank to have been established in the UK, based at Cambridge University. We facilitate a unique, mutually beneficial dialogue between Cambridge students and national policymakers, across all areas of public policy, from the domestic to the foreign, from the social to the economic.

We operate like any other such organisation but have no political affiliation, incorporating the wide range of views of students at the University of Cambridge. We work to produce practical yet innovative proposals with their viability and consequences always in mind. Unlike most student political organisations, we avoid ideological battle and focus on creative solutions to real world problems.
