We’ve racked up the accolades this academic year. Read on for a few highlights.

  • BUCS Physical Activity Award – winner
  • BUCS Sportswoman of the Year (Hayley Mills) - winner
  • Student Volunteer of the Year (Aymun Khan) - winner
  • Workforce Programme of the Year – winner
  • Participation Programme of the Year – winner
  • BUCS Profile and Influence Award – runner-up

The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide

In one of the UK’s most respected university league tables we were named Sports University of the Year 2019.

Student successes

Three of our students were selected for the Winter World University Games and three for the Summer World University Games. Individuals or teams from seven sports qualified for the European University Championships, and 25 of you have represented 10 countries at a senior international level across a wide range of sports.

Hosting events

We’ve hosted a number of key sporting events this year, including the British Open for Dodgeball, the Boccia National League Finals, the British Fencing GB Cup and the England Netball U17, U19 and U21 National Performance League Tournament. We also hosted 420 school children at Discover Days to raise aspirations of children in disadvantaged areas.

Thank you to each and every one of you who have helped us achieve such fantastic results in sport this year, and well done to all of you.
