Welcome to BioSoc! 

BioSoc represents all students that are interested in Biology related subjects, ranging from Genetics to Ecology. Most of our members study a subject within the Faculty of Biological Sciences.
Our committee works together to organise a range of socials, events, sports and collaborations throughout the year, allowing members to meet new people and spark new friendships with others from our faculty. Membership not only gurantees you a fab time, but also a range of fantastic discounts - see the 'our sponsors' section for details!
There are a handful of societies representing biological students, however BioSoc is one of the oldest, friendliest, and most active of these - continually producing great years of fantastic social and educational events for its members. We guarantee that joining our society will enhance your experience whilst studying at Leeds!

Sport for 2018/19

We've had a great year for BioSoc sports, with successes for both teams and plenty of fun had by our players along the way!  You don’t have to be a pro to join our teams, just have a laugh and bring your team spirit! Look out for details on how to get involved with BioSoc sports during Fresher's week and on our social media pages.
