Science Society

The Science Society hosts termly series of lay-friendly talks throughout term, which help to contribute to an understanding of how science and technology affect not only the way we live now, but perhaps more importantly, how they will affect our lives in the future.

Music Society

Students’ Association (WCSA)

The Wolfson College Students' Association (WCSA) represents and supports all postgraduate, undergraduate, and part-time students in College business, social and sports activities. The WCSA Committee consists of a dozen members, including the President, that between them contribute to all areas of student life in College.

Throughout the year, WCSA organises and facilitates events for Wolfson students, and helps organise and fund student sports teams and societies. The budget is primarily drawn from the annual WCSA membership fee of £16.50 per year, which is automatically deducted from our students' College accounts. WCSA also has a standing space on several College committees, ensuring that students' needs are always represented in College affairs.

Stay in the loop

Current students can join the WCSA Facebook group to keep up to date with all the events and activities arranged by the association, including club nights and the famous comedy night, the Wolfson Howler.
