During the first two weeks of the academic year, we run trials for TeamBU, our community of Performance Sport athletes who compete in British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) leagues and competitions. These are at a local, regional, national and, for some, international level.

We are committed to improving our BUCS ranking each year – we’re currently 30th out of 153 other UK universities – so, if you are a talented athlete with a competitive nature who is looking to excel in your chosen sport while you study with us, then try out for TeamBU.


If you're successful in becoming a TeamBU athlete, either within a team or as an individual, you will be required to purchase a sport specific membership each academic year.

This fee includes; BUCS affiliation fees, officials fees, personal sports insurance (drop by SportBU reception for claim forms and any support you may need), weekly coaching and conditioning sessions, up to £80 discount off of SportBU Premium membership, TeamBU transport, a training t-shirt, access to the Sports Ball* and TeamBU photo day.

*Limited availability at  this event.
