About Us

We are the Science Society for students at Murray Edwards College. Most of our members are NatScis but anyone from any subject with an interest in Science is welcome.

We provide weekly drop-in sessions in the JCR. These allow you to meet students in other year groups, get help and advice, and help yourself to our cake and biscuits!


We also run parties throughout the year, normally at the start and end of each term. These have previously included Pizza Night and Science Themed Cocktails.


Careers and academic events are held usually once or twice a term. These may include Fellows Talks events, NatSci Module Options evenings and more.


Current Committee:
Kyra Mozley - President
Catherine Boddy - Treasurer
Hennie Coales - Secretary
