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.

Join 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 represent an academic institution or company wanting to be involved, we’d love to hear from you. If you have a query about the Society or would like to contribute, please get in touch with us via the ‘web enquires’ form here.

Resources are available for applicants to universities, current students, schools, graduates and university teachers via the Resources tab in the main menu.

As part of our on-going activities we invite you to become a member to view the monthly seminars and discussions on pedagogic research activities, and approches for teaching across the natural sciences.
We also host a variety of cross-cutting research seminars – our seminar gallery can be found here.
You can also freely join our LinkedIn community group to keep up-to-date with events and activiites.
