The majority of clubs play competitively in the British University and College Sport (BUCS) leagues where they have had much success in recent years. Abertay sport can also offer a diverse range of non-competitive and recreational sport for those looking to enjoy the social side of club life, including our Free Sport Wednesday programme.
Many teams also play in local or regional events organised by Scottish Student Sport (SSS) providing plenty of opportunity for all club the members to play an active role. The 2018/19 saw both league and cup success alongside an increase in Sports Union membership. In total Abertay Students engaged in more than 30000 hours of activity.
We are equally proud of our Elite Athlete Development Programme, which is dedicated to helping national standard athletes combine their studies with their sporting commitments. The Programme has, in the past, supported athletes competing at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships in addition to helping many achieve national recognition in their sport.
Our primary aim is to get "more people, more active, more often."
