Our academic events aim to be highly educational. They often focus on employability and help give students a wider appreciation of the field of Biological Sciences and related disciplines. This year you can expect presentations from the universities’ CMS ambassador on how law can be applied within the Biological Sciences, exclusive talks about diversity within Biological Sciences from proactive guest speakers, a Q+A session with previous year in industry/year abroad students, and more.


FoBSoc socials are the best way to meet and socialise with people on your course and within the faculty. Held fortnightly and with a range of events to suit all. FoBSoc socials include movie and pizza nights, pub quizzes, Otley runs, and so much more! We also have some big headliners for the year with very generous bar tabs such as our festive Snowcial and our FoBSoc ball! These events have huge bioscience turnouts, you will NOT want to miss these. We won’t let COVID ruin your fun!


Standard membership fees are reduced during freshers period, so get yours while you can! This fee allows you to attend ALL socials ran by the society, as well as giving you significantly reduced ticket prices to the biggest and best events for the faculty! Now this is something you won't want to miss while prices are down!

We have also made our academic membership FREE! Meaning you can attend any of our amazing academic events that take your interest at the cost of nothing!
