IPSA’s Undergraduate Division Gender Discrimination Debate

IPSA’s Undergraduate Division (BAIS) hosted its first Arabic debate competition with its final-year students, with the hope of advancing dialogue and nurturing the spirit of free thought, open discussions, constructive debate, and enhancing the students’ Arabic-speaking skills. 

The debate took place in the IPSA conference room yesterday (04/03/2021) and consisted of two teams comprising of the BA III students, who argued for, and against the topic of Gender Discrimination

IPSAs Head of the Undergraduate Department, Dr. Belqes Saif al-Sowaidi has trained students since the beginning of the academic year and has expressed how proud she is of the students’ progress and skills in learning the Arabic language alongside the art of debate.  IPSA CEO Dr. Dawood Terblanche also remarked that he is extremely proud of the students’ debating skills in the Arabic language and that it is heart-warming to see how far the students have come in their learning trajectory of studying Arabic at IPSA for the past 2 years. 

IPSAs Arabic department hopes to have more Arabic debate competitions amongst its students in the future, in preparation for International debating championships. We wish all our students well for the year ahead!
