NatSci Soc

Welcome to NatSci Soc,

where indecision is a decision too!

Welcome to Natsci Soc - the home of Natural Sciences at The University of Nottingham. 

Our aims are to provide a network for Natural Sciences students such that members are able to meet likeminded people both inside and outside of the Natural Sciences course. It has often been said that one of the benefits of Natural Sciences at Nottingham is the closeness of the course and our members can certainly vouch for that! This tightknit community would not be possible without Natsci Soc being at the heart of all socials, sport matches, career events, etc. Our wonderful committee work closely with the School of Mathematical Sciences, our home school, to provide you with the best social and educational experiences possible. To find out more about the people behind the scenes that make all of this possible, meet the committee here.


The main benefit of being a member of Natsci Soc is the wonderful socials which run regularly throughout the year. As a member, you will have exclusive access to purchasing tickets for boat cruises up the River Trent, the annual Natsci Christmas meal, bar crawls with other societies, and anything from ice skating to bowling to anything in between! So many socials are run throughout the year that there will always be an event to suit your personality and each event is a great opportunity to meet new people. See some of the previous events we have run if you need any more convincing that Natsci Soc is for you.

Our social secretaries Charlie Ponting and Ella Tolfrey have been working all year to organise socials especially for our members. Please join the Facebook page to keep up to date with upcoming socials. There's so much choice over the course of the year that there will always be something to suit your tastes, but if you have an idea we would encourage you to get in touch with us and we will see if we can accommodate it. After all, we are your society for you!


IMS Sport has always been an integral part of Natsci Soc and it is a fabulous way to get involved with the society and be active at the same time. In the academic year 2019-20 we are offering netball and football. IMS sport has been a huge success in previous years, especially seeing as no previous experience is required and it's a fun way to spend an afternoon with your friends. Our sports secretaries Thomas Dickin and Anna Robson will be busy throughout the term captaining Natural Sciences to sporting success! If you're interested in learning more, please visit our natsci sport page or contact the sports secs directly.

So why become a member?

Becoming a member means you can get involved with everything NatSci Soc does, allowing you to meet people from across the course as well as giving you money off all our socials, including drinks deals on nights out and the chance to join in with all our sports teams. It's only £6.50 for the year, or £15 for three years for freshers! So what are you waiting for?
