The Milestone Institute’s Debating Society cordially invites prospective students and teachers to witness a stimulating Show Debate on the topic of the proportion of science subjects in the teaching curriculum. We welcome everyone with an interest in debating, studying Social Sciences and in the work of the Institute. At the event guests shall have the chance to hear from the Director of Academic Studies, George Greskovits about the importance of argumentative skills and democratic pedagogy then watch a debate by the competitive team who are currently in preparation for the Zagreb Winter Holidays Open. At the Show Debate you shall also have the opportunity to learn more about the upcoming Oxford Schools and ICYD Qualifiers to be held at the Institute in 2019 and how you or your students can attend.

The motion shall be ‘This House regrets the increasing focus on STEM education.’ Audience participation is highly encouraged in the form of point of information and questions after each speaker has finished but is by no means compulsory.

Please register you class or yourself via this google form so we have an idea of numbers for event planning. If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with Eszter Jókay, the Community and Student Life Coordinator at

The event shall commence at 14:00 on the 8th December at the Milestone Institute (Budapest Bajza utca 44. 3rd floor) snacks and drinks will be provided.
