Welcome to the Society for Natural Sciences

The Society for Natural Sciences (SNS) is a professional body for scientists, educators and students working across the discipline boundaries of science. 

“Promoting Interdisciplinary Science Education and Research”

Many of the technical issues of sustainability in energy and material resources, advances in technology and medicine, that are now faced by society are interdisciplinary. Natural scientists are in the vanguard of scientists who can cross disciplines to help tackle these problems and contribute to a better life for all.

To address these issues the Society for Natural Sciences:

  • Runs outreach activities for schools, holds conferences for undergraduate students and meetings with employers.
  • Provides information about opportunities for natural sciences.
  • Accredits degree programmes: accredited courses are at least comparable in standard with single discipline degrees.

As a Society we are keen to support the equality of experience of Natural Sciences students alongside other specialist subjects during Covid. Our equality statement can be found here.

Register now to become a part of our community to contribute your story to the website to encourage others to cross the discipline boundaries; get information from employers and about events!

If you are an academic institution, company or clinician wanting to be involved we’d love to hear from you.

Should you have any need for dissemination of excellent activity across the Natural Sciences, or want to engage with the Society, please get in touch with us via the ‘web enquires’ form here.
