The Board of Irish College Societies (BICS) is a national organisation constituted in 1995, dedicated to providing a national forum for the societies in Ireland’s Universities, Colleges and Institutes of Education.
The Board is responsible for the promotion of interest in the activities of Irish college societies and of contact and co-operation between them.
During the course of the past twenty-six years, the Board has met many of its objectives, in particular the exchange of information, and most successfully, the inauguration of the National Society of the Year Awards. BICS also acts as an information resource and support mechanism for society administrators throughout the country promoting the sharing of ideas and the implementation of best practice.
Student societies are a path to a greater experience of higher education, to building friendships which will last far beyond your college years and gaining skills which are just as valuable as any you will learn in a lecture hall.
