BUCS - The voice of university sport.

British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) is the national governing body for higher education sport in the UK. Its vision is to enhance the student experience in three key areas:

  • Performance
  • Competition
  • Participation

To do this, BUCS works with student athletes, athletic union staff and elected officers as well as professional sporting staff, coaches and volunteers at its 157 member institutionsit. It offers a comprehensive, multi-sport competition structure and manages the development of services and facilities for participative, grass-roots sport and healthy campuses through to high-performance, elite athletes.

The BUCS sporting programme is available to the 2.3 million students across the UK. Over 100,000 students regularly compete in BUCS competitions, leagues and events. BUCS delivers 50 sports to these students and universities and organises 150 individual final or championship events each year.

The seasonal programme begins at the start of the academic year in October with the national Surfing Championships at Fistral Beach in Newquay; and continues until the following July with the final events including, cricket, shooting and a combined athletics event. Over 4000 teams compete in BUCS team sports and competitions each year and the finale for many is the BUCS Championships.
