The Malta University Debating Union (MUDU) was founded by the University Students' Council (KSU) and the University of Malta, and aims to reach out to as many students as possible. Its objectives are primarily to promote debate and discussion, to train students in the art and style of debate and discussion and to provide a forum for debates on issues of national concern. This is indeed the reason why this Union will be working tirelessly on both competitive and chamber debating.
