Friday, 20th September 2019, the Intervarsity Debate Championship for Public Universities was held for 3 days at the Dengkil Branch of UiTM. All foundation centres from 13 public universities and KPM Matriculation Centres participated in the competition.
The parliamentary style debate competition was divided into the Malay Language Category and the English Language Category which were held simultaneously according to the schedule provided by the organizer.
ASPer UPM also participated in the competition with two main debating teams, one for the Malay Language Division and the other for the English Language Division.
While both teams were strong contenders in the competition, the Malay Language Debating Team ended their journey at the quarter finals with the rivals attaining a slim victory.
The English Debating Team however managed to proceed to the finals, meeting face-to-face with the Malaccan Matriculation College Debating Team.
