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 and scavenger hunts. 

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!



News and updates regarding events will be posted on the Edinburgh Uni BioSoc Facebook page - remember to click like and follow to keep updated on all things BioSoc!



Yearly membership costs £3 (£5 for non-students). This gives access to all BioSoc events, as well as allowing you to capitalize on the great deals offered to members by our sponsors. Membership also gives you a discount from you BioBall ticket at the end of the academic year!
