Make sure to check us out at the Freshers’ Fair on 29th and 30th September if you’re interested in taking part in anything ChemSoc related!

As a result of the current situation we are in the process of adapting and planning new events to fit with government guidelines. We are passionate about providing students and staff members alike a welcoming and positive environment and want to give you the best university exprerience possible! So with that in mind don't worry we're planning lots of great events and sessions and are looking forward to meeting new members and welcoming back existing members in whatever format that might be for the moment! Make sure to check our social media too as we will post updates there and if you have any questions or suggestions please get in touch :)

Membership:  £5 per year

An example of activities:

The year traditionally starts off with the freshers’ bar crawl and/or pub event. This is a chance for the freshers to get to know the committee, each other, and meet chemists from other year groups. This is only the beginning of our social calendar; we’re currently planning both drinking and non-drinking social events, including film nights, crazy golf, and pub quizzes. Often seen as the highlight of our social calendar is the Spring Ball: a lovely way to round off the year before exams by getting dressed up with coursemates and lecturers alike. We are also hoping to participate in events with various other societies throughout the year!

Academically, we’re in the process of arranging visits to companies and other universities, as well as putting our heads together with the department’s academics to organise industry talks, study support groups and much more!

If you’re into sports, this year we'll be taking part in intramural netball and football. The only requirement to join is enthusiasm!

If you have any questions, concerns, or just ideas to share, feel free to drop us a message or email anytime! We want to make uni life as fun and enjoyable as possible so we hope you'll all join us in doing so!


Are you interested in attending the Spring Ball in March 2022 if the ticket prices are £30-£35?
