Our Sport staff and club committee members are working hard with facilities to ensure all measures are in place to provide a safe environment for both new and returning students.

Abertay Sport have put in place procedures in line with guidance from the Government, Sport Scotland and Sport Governing bodies to allow students to participate in a safe environment. For more information please visit the Sport Scotland Covid page.

British University and College Sport (BUCS) have announced that all there will be a full calendar of competitive league fixtures for the coming 2021/22 season.

Abertay Sport

No matter if you want to play at a competitive level or look for social and fun activity to take part in after lectures, we have activities for you.

Sport and physical activity at Abertay University is as much a part of university life as attending lectures and tutorials. Although a small university, Abertay offers a wide range of clubs from the traditional sports such as rugby and football to the more diverse sports such as dance.

Competitions and Programmes

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.

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.
