Welcome to BioSoc!

BioSoc is a great way to meet like-minded people and further your passion for biology in a social environment. Throughout the year we organize and host a series of academic and social events, which allow you to get to know your fellow peers.


Academic Support and Opportunities:

BioSoc offers academic support to any students in need. With members studying in all academic years for a series of Bachelors of Science (BSc) we guarantee that we can give advice, suggestions, and tips on how to deal with any difficulties you may encounter based on past experience. In addition, the Biology Society offers great opportunities to further your academic experience and expand your view of biology. We host guest lecturers, who discuss current world events and run educative trips to the Edinburgh Zoo and Botanical Gardens.


Social Experience:

BioSoc prides itself on its fantastic and creative social events that occur throughout the year. These socials are always great fun and are a really good way of getting to know other Biology enthusiasts! A few of our previous socials include pub quizzes, scavenger hunts and themed dress up pubcrawls. 

BioSoc is also responsible for organising the BioBall - the most highly anticipated social event of the year! Tickets always sell out quickly so keep an eye out for announcements on the BioSoc facebook page!

Intramural sports

Male and Female intramural sports teams are being created for biosoc members and other individuals interested in joining. Handball and football teams are being created, but our sport secretary is open to suggestions! If you are interested in joining please see the contacts bellow:
