Sport at Abertay University

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.

Abertay Sport

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 triathlon and dance.


Mental Health and Physical Activity

Abertay Sport are proud signatories of of Scotland's Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity and Sport. The Charter, funded by Comic Relief, aims to make physical activity and sport more accessible to people with mental health problems. 

Read more here about our commitment to developing and delivering a variety of programmes that will help our students and staff be as active as possible in an environment that promotes mental as well as physical wellbeing.


Competitions and Programmes

The majority of clubs compete 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 student versus staff golf. 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 2015/16 season was our most successful to date with four BUCS titles, three SSS titles, a number of local league success stories alongside the highest Sports Union membership to date with over 420 students involved in sport at Abertay.

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.
