Academic Aspect 

Geolsoc is a fantastic opportunity to network with other students within the Geoscience community at Edinburgh, who will be able to give you extra advice, tips and support throughout your time here. We also host a lecture series which includes sessions on topics of interest and career advice. 



Hosting regular socials throughout the year is a key part of the society. Of Quartz Geoscientists know how to have a good time and are arguably the most social of all the sciences... 

Events include beerinteering, 'family' nights, pub quizzes, pub crawls, flat crawls, a Christmas meal and more. The main event of the year is the Spring Geolsoc Ball, hands down the Gneiss-est night of the year. 




We run a number of day trips throughout the year as well as a weekend residential fieldtrip somewhere in the UK. Past destinations include the Isle of Skye, Isle of Arran and the Lake District. 




As a society we are involved in intermural sports with both a hockey and football team - anyone is welcome to join, regardless of previous experience. 

  • Mixed Hockey (Friday Evenings) - The Gneiss Guys - Facebook group
  • Men's Football (Wednesday Afternoon) - Feldsparta Prague - Facebook group
