  • Bio soc


BioSoc: School and Union-affiliated society for Biology at the University of Bristol. BioSoc is a student-run society open to all members of the University, whether studying Biology or not.

This is the society for all those who enjoy or want to know more about the living world, be it furry, scaly, green or even microscopic! 


Throughout the year we have talks, sports, socials, debate nights, pub quizzes and our much anticipated Biology Summer Ball! 


We are always welcoming new members to join, no matter which course you take.


You can also sign up to our family scheme which will match you up with students from 2nd and 3rd years who will be able to guide you through your 1st year studying in Bristol.


So you love sport? We run society intramural netball and football teams - you can take part in matches against other societies at the University.
