Sorry, there are no memberships available to purchase.



The Marine Biology Society offers various opportunities for our members to socialise with like-minded people and enhance their knowledge. Last year we hosted themed socials, documentary and film screenings, academic talks, beach cleans, rockpooling sessions, camping trips, photography competitions, pub quizzes, dissertation introductions, placement opportunity talks, and many more events. Two of our annual highlights are the Winter Ball at the National Marine Aquarium and our Summer boat party! Due to COVID19, there will be a mix of our first term events online and in person. 
We will be focusing on providing weekly talks, training courses and other online activities to keep our members busy! We also have a few joint society socials to look forward to! 
This year we are not working with the Marine Biological Association of the UK and therefore are not offering the usual two membership options. However, we are still working closely with them. 
1) £6 Society membership:

It gets you membership to the Marine Biology Society, allowing you to attend all open and member-only events and discounted tickets to our Winter Ball and Summer Boat Party, amongst other events.

2) Marine Biology Society: 

Joining the MBA will enable you to join their surveys - they are a fantastic way of improving identification skills, fundamental to the success of biological degree programs. The MBA also have one of the best marine biology libraries in the world and regularly host members-only seminars at their laboratories on the Hoe. They have some new membership schemes starting September so keep an eye out!  

Upcoming Events

Please note: We have been monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and will be running a mix of in-person and online events and activities.
