Who are we?

PhySoc is the Physics Society here at the University of Bath, and we welcome anyone wishing to join, whether you are studying Physics or simply have an interest!

We are an energetic society that provides fellow science enthusiasts with the opportunity to relax and bond together. We organize days out to awesome science places, nights out at Labyrinth, and enjoyable moments of contemplation over food and drinks. This fosters the growth and development of the scientist's brain alongside others who share similar interests.
