What is BUCS?
British Universities & College Sport host inter-university sporting competitions throughout the year. Universities from across the country get involved and compete against each other across a wide range of diverse sports.
Unfortunately, most BUCS competitions are currently postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BUCS are reviewing this and hope to resume some activities as soon as possible.
If you prefer fierce competition, then you should look no further than the BUCS competitions that bring students together to compete regionally and nationally against other institutions.
You can join one of the 39 sports teams that play every Wednesday afternoon in BUCS fixtures. Trials for each team are usually held at the beginning of term 1.
Please note: Some of the teams stated below may be male, female or mixed teams.
