Society Constitution View Our Constitution ?SOCIALS Biosoc is known for throwing great events and organises many socials throughout each term to suit everyone. These are great times to meet new friends, show us your creative skills at fancy dress and to relax from your university work. After Easter we also hold a Biosoc Ball which is a formal event with live music, a sit down meal and extra entertainment. This is always a great evening where you can reminisce the past year with your friends, and have fun before exam revision starts. SOCIETY SPORTS FOOTBALL - All standards of players are welcome to join our teams. We have a number of teams, meaning you can play at a time and level that suits you. Playing Intra Mural sport is a great way to spend an hour of your week, meeting new people and relaxing from uni work. NETBALL - The biosoc netball team is a fun way to be part of a team that plays regular matches in the intra mural legue against other academic departments. Playing netball with biosoc is a relaxed way to get involved and meet new people. It is a mixed team and players of any ability are welcome. Volunteering Biosoc offers a variety of biotastic volunteering activities throughout the year. Including conservation events in the peak district, a school mentoring scheme, and other fundraising events. TOUR The BioSoc tour is one of the main events organised, and isn't to be missed. Enjoy a weekend away in a European city - visiting the local sites and experiencing the culture in the day, and when the sun has set - experience the city's nightlife. This is a great way to celebrate your January exams and to make new friends across all year groups. Keep an eye on the Facebook pages to see where we'll be going this year!

*** Due to the ongoing restrictions surronding Covid-19, certain activities will be suspended. However, as soon as restrictions are reduced the activities will be resumed.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
