The award winning UCC ChemSoc is back for the 10/11 Academic year!

Established in 1925 (12th Nov) the UCC Chemical Society is one of the oldest Societies in UCC and the oldest science-based society in Ireland. Evolving over the past 85 years we have always strived to offer our students the best student experience possible. We have regular annual events such as the Quiz night (not all chemistry questions! Called the John Tobin Table Quiz ) and football cups. Our annual Mystery tour may also tempt you along with our brand new Chemistry Ball! And remember you don稚 have to be a chemist to be part of our society either, everyone is welcome.
