Biological Sciences

What we’re all about

FoBSoc welcome undergraduate and postgraduate students on courses across the Faculty of Biological Sciences. They run a wide range of social and academic events throughout the year both on their own and in collaboration with other societies.


We run a range of educational events throughout the year, on our own and in collaboration with other societies or our sponsors, focusing on employability and helping you learn about your chosen field. We'll treat you to guest speakers, educational workshops and a tour of Covance research facilities.


FoBSoc has two intramural sports teams (football and netball) for the sports enthusiasts and a 'couch to 5k' initiative where we meet weekly to train and run together.


FoBSoc socials are a great way to meet and socialise with people on your course. Held frequently and with a range of events to suit all, they include pub quizzes, Otley runs and visiting the Christmas market. We also have some big headliners for the year with very generous bar tabs such as our lab coat social, the festive Snowcial and our not to be missed FoBSoc ball!
