The University currently recognises 11 sports as part of the Performance Sport programme. Each sport benefits from increased support and a dedicated sports-specific Director or Head Coach. This support includes sport science interventions such as strength and conditioning and performance analysis, increased funding and greater access to training facilities and long-term development and performance strategies.
Many of our top teams compete at BUCS Premier League level and most in the top tier within Scotland. Support is in place to help increase the amount of teams competing at the highest level of British student sport, with the aim of winning titles. Numerous sports also compete in national competition out with the BUCS/SSS structure to help give our students the most extensive and challenging experience possible.
