We hold a range of social and academic events throughout the year, catering for everyone! Things will naturally be a little different this year, but we’ve worked hard and we have a fantastic pipeline of COVID-safe events planned. Have a look at our social media channels to see all of our previous and upcoming events!
This new arm of BioSoc tends to focus on personal development and employability related talks, seminars and workshops. We get a whole host of external speakers in on topics such as life science law, conservation, diversity and inclusion, studying abroad and more! These events are open to anyone with a free Standard BioSoc Membership.
The social side of BioSoc focuses on helping you get to know your coursemates and spark friendships with others who have the same love of the biosciences. In the year of COVID-19, we’ve inevitably had to go virtual with pub quizzes, bingo, Kahoot, competitions, bake-offs and more.
Hopefully in 2021, we can get back to hosting our regular in-person events including nights out, Otley Runs, Pot Your Own Plant, Attenborough and Chill and actual pub quizzes in a real pub!
Annual Trip Abroad
BioSoc also run an annual 3 or 4-night trip abroad, normally around the Easter break. Most recently we’ve had fantastic trips to Amsterdam and Prague – at absolute bargain prices. Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions mean we can’t organise one just yet but as soon as anything changes, we’ll try our best to make a trip happen.
