Sociology & Social Policy (SocSoc)

What we’re all about

Hello and welcome to SocSoc!

SocSoc is one of Leeds' friendliest, most proactive and diverse societies. Run entirely by your UoL peers, we are open to anybody studying Sociology, Social Policy or any variation including Social Policy and Crime, Social Policy and Enterprise and much more. We are also more than welcoming towards anybody who does not study these subjects too. 

What we do

SocSoc was created to give our members the best university experience possible. We aim to have activities to suit every single one of our members from traditional undergraduates to mature students to international students and even those who do not study our core subjects but have a deep interest in it.

Here is a quick idea of things you can expect from us throughout the following year:

  • Socials - club nights, pub nights, trips out of Leeds, meals, picnics, a Christmas party and of course, the famous Leeds 'Otley Run' with a killer theme
  • A men's football team
  • A women's netball team
  • Debates
  • Talks from guest speakers and local sociologists
  • Fundraising events
  • Outings

If there is anything else that you would like to do, please get in touch with Amy Gilligan or Amie Flynn, your social secs who are more than happy to organise this for you.

How to join

Either join via this website by signing in with your university login details and clicking 'Join group' or come and visit us at the freshers' fair. You will also see us around during freshers' week, we are there on the 25th September in the academic tent! 

Any questions, please get in touch via our Facebook group or our (new!) Instagram @socsocluu !
