BioSoc Boat Party 2022!

Ahoy there and welcome aboard!! We are so excited to bring back the infamous end-of-year/exams boat party!  This year the theme is UNDER THE SEA but don't worry we aren't planning to sink the boat...  

To fit with our theme and help out with an issue important to a lot of us, we will be donating one pound from everyone's ticket to The Shark Trust ( which operates globally to protect, manage and conserve everything shark!  We hope you'll find this as important a cause as us as we find more and more ways in which we can support our local wildlife. 

About us

If you love your biological science degree and want to meet like-minded people, then BioSoc is the place for you. We are a group of organismal and molecular biologists keen to share ideas and socialise with other students interested in biology, whether they study it or not!

BioSoc is an amazing opportunity to meet and create lifetime friends who all have a vested interest in a biological science stream, and as a super friendly and relaxed society, there is a place for everyone who wants to get involved. BioSoc is open to everyone so don't worry if you aren't doing a biology degree!  We love meeting new people who can share a different way of thinking so come along!!


We have three different options for you this year so you can tailor your experience.  A Social Membership (The Mary Anning) is FREE and includes access to events run by BioSoc and makes you eligible to buy our merch. To become more involved in our society you can sign up for The Rosalind Franklin Membership and pay £3 for the year to attend all socials, get our merch and come on day or overnight trips with us!  On top of this, there is The David Attenborough top-up which is an extra £4 for the year which means BioSoc will subsidise some ticketed events and trips for you!

Events and Activities

The core activities of BioSoc include regular meet-ups, student study opportunities, and student-staff events. We are very focused on creating a buzzing atmosphere to really bring the department together and making events to cater to everyone. BioSoc is prepared for moving to online events should it be required. This includes Netflix nights, quizzes, socially distanced picnics among other socials. Other planned events include a trip to the Jurassic Coast, pub meets, museum trips and so many other exciting projects in the works!  Some of these activities require buying tickets however these are discounted for Premium Membership holders and other extra bonuses are included!
