We are the Faculty of Biological Sciences society - one of the biggest and best societies in LUU! With over 850 members in 2015/16, we cater for both undergraduates and postgraduates across all courses within FBS. We run a wide range of social and educational events throughout the year, on our own and in collaboration with other societies, meaning we provide something for everyone. We also have four intramural teams (football, netball, hockey & rugby) for our sportier members. Memberships include some fantastic discounts from our sponsors/partners and can be bought either for one year or as a lifetime membership. Why not sign up today and be a part of the best society in LUU?
