PCSB Geology Society

Membership for the year is only £5!

07/10/21 Update: By popular demand, an alumni (associate) membership option has been added!

Who we are?

The Peter Colley Sylvester Bradley (PCSB) Geology Society was founded over 50 years ago and is one of the most active and dedicated, course-linked, student-led societies at University of Leicester

Historically membership has been over 200 members, we welcome undergraduates, postgraduates, staff and alumni to all our events.

We are the link between the department, the union and you.

What we do? 

Monday Night Talks: Regular talks (usually at 5pm) from industry, researchers, visiting lecturers and PhD students. Delivered at a suitable level for all, and followed by a trip to the pub, these are the perfect opportunity to learn about active research, modern innovations in the field and career opportunities in industry. It's also a great way to get social and make connections.

Social Life: Since March 2020 we haven't been able to run any in person social events, but this year that all changes. Our events include

  • Red T-Shirt Bar Crawl
  • Inter-Science Bar Crawl
  • Christmas Party
  • Geology Ball

Fieldtrips: We usually offer a field trip for each semester, from local day trips to overnight stays further abroad. The cost of these trips is kept as low as possible to make them available for all. More details are to come soon, the best way to keep up with this is by joining our facebook group

Currently we have our first field trip in the works to Tilton Quarry- 23/10 10am Minibus to Tilton quarry, a type locality for multiple fossil species

Hope to see you all in person soon

Joseph Surzyn, PCSB President.
