Societies

BioSoc

BioSoc

BioSoc is the University of Warwick's Biology Society!

Friendly, innovative and open to anyone, the society is a focal point for all Life Sciences students or anyone interested in biology.

Each and every year we see BioSoc getting bigger and better, which means that this year we expect to have more of you enjoying yourselves than ever! This means we’ve prepared LOADS more socials, opportunities and of course, FREE FOOD!

Because we scientists deserve a break from our many hours of labs and lectures, we like to provide our members with fantastic socials throughout the year. From movie nights to laser tag, meetups to nights out, we have plenty to offer you and more importantly, it’s a great way to meet new people and make friends!

BioSoc also promises to provide exciting opportunities for all to go on amazing trips; this year will be our third ever tour! Previous trips to Amsterdam and Lisbon proved to be such a success that we are bringing it back this year for a trip to a secret unannounced location - like our Facebook page for updates on when/where we are going!


BioSoc Sports

A healthy body is a healthy mind.

Members of Biosoc are encouraged to take part in sports as a relief from their studies, and just university life in general. As life scientists, we are aware of the amazing complexity of the body, what better use for it than to exert it to its maximum potential in challenging, yet enjoyable physical activity! Stay fit and mentally sharp with your course mates - this can be achieved through our netball and football teams. With matches being organised through the university active league, we have participated and remained active in many tournaments.                                                                            


Socials

Here at BioSoc, we pride ourselves at giving you exactly what you asked for...a nice mix of sober and drinking socials, a ball to celebrate the year, big charity events and much much more!. Its unprecedented network and working relationships with Kasbah, Neon, Smack, Kelseys, Samoan Joes, TJs, Clink, Altoria has enabled it to bring some of the cheapest and exclusive nights out in Warwick - from booking out the main room of kasbah to having direct entry Q jumps for Neon, BioSoc continues to have amazing nights out, alcoholic or not.


Academic Support

BioSoc offers student-lead Peer Support Sessions throughout the year, available to all undergraduates. These sessions are great for help with things such as:

  • Lab reports,

  • Lecture notes,

  • Exam revision,

  • Dissertations,

or even just a chance to relax and chat with other Life Sciences students over free pizza and hot drinks!

BioCafe is on Mondays most weeks from 5pm - 6pm, with upper year mentors to provide advice and help throughout the year.

There is also a rehauled Year 1 Mentorship Scheme as part of our Outreach efforts - students who sign up will be assigned an upper year mentor doing the same course, meant to be a source of friendly and accessible guidance throughout your first year! They are there for any concerns or questions you may have over the year. There will also be various social events for you to attend with your mentors, a great way to connect with different year groups, share advice, support and wisdom, as well as just to make friends.

To request a mentor: Go to Moodle and access Student Guide 2019/20 > Year 1 Course Information > BioSoc Mentor Sign up.


Outreach

At BioSoc, we always attempt to hook you up with the best opportunities. 

Managed by our outreach officer, we liaise with schools around University to set up science sessions, exhibitions and clubs in the local area in an endeavour to help spread an interest in the wonderful world of science.

Volunteering with us is a great opportunity for those who believe their vocation may lie in teaching, or simply just for the experience to add to those CVs!

Projects include:

  • Running Science clubs and Science Weeks in local schools

  • Outreach projects to guide disadvantaged groups into STEM and/or higher education

  • Local exhibitions

                              


Trips

For the 2019/20 academic year, we have a domestic tour to the Peak District in the works, including social events & a night out with the Sheffield University BioSoc! Stay tuned for more info which will be posted on the BioSoc Facebook page & newsletter.
