Welcome to EdSoc!

EdSoc is a relaxed, friendly and enjoyable society for anyone who is interested in education and for people considering studying it. We  bring together students interested in the study of education with an aim to create positive networks and friendships. We are one of the fastest growing societies and it is clear to see why. We run a variety of society events once every two weeks, such as trips, debates, socials and an Education ball!

Our Aims:

  1. To unite people, across the University, who are interested in education.
  2. To create an enjoyable environment where connections and positive attitudes can be shared.
  3. To collaborate with societies and people who are not studying education.
  4. To provide opportunities to continue professional development.
