Bath University Maths Society – BUMS

Our student’s union Math-sci society offer a wide range of events.

“We’re mainly famous for our huge nights out in Bristol… But we also focus a lot on letting you know about graduate/placement employer events going on campus that we think you’ll be interested in, plus setting up our own presentations and networking events with maths related job opportunities (usually with free food!)

Obviously we also chuck in some real maths stuff. Like celebrating pii day (March 14th = 3/14) and putting on interestingly different maths lectures for you guys.”
