Welcome to the Oxford University Scientific Society

What is the Society?

The Oxford University Scientific Society (OUSS) was founded in 1882 as The Oxford University Junior Scientific Club, and has had many distinguished speakers visit over the years. It is now one of Oxford's oldest and largest societies.

The society offers its members the opportunity to listen to interesting and talented speakers who are at the forefront of their field. The talks are intended to be of general scientific interest, and are usually chosen for their prominence in popular science or the news, or for their entertainment value.

We also organise free or subsidized visits to places of scientific interest. Past events have included tours of the Joint European Torus project, the Bodleian Library, the Oxford Museum of the History of Science, the National Space centre in Leicester, the Body Worlds exhibition in London and the MINI factory in Oxford. Suggestions for further visits are always very welcome!

It's never too late to start thinking about your career! The Graduate Recruitment Bureau is a career recruitment site that provides a wealth of services, ranging from receiving up-to-date job vacancies, speaking to consultants to CV help. And it's all FREE! There are even graduate and student discounts on offer!
