Sport at Abertay University

Abertay Sport

No matter if you want to play at a competitive level or are wanting a social and fun session 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. We offer a range of clubs from the traditional sports such as rugby and football to 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 if you are 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. We've had both league and cup wins as well as an increase in Sports Union membership over the years. In 2018/19 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.
