British Universities and Colleges Sport are delighted to announce our new partnership with Quality Nutritional Technology (QNT) and the launch of Club QNT, an online nutrition resource designed specifically for and exclusive to BUCS athletes.
As BUCS Official Nutritional Partner, QNT will support student athletes by offering the products and knowledge that would otherwise only be accessible to professional athletes. Recognized as a world leader in sports nutrition, QNT will help student athletes improve performance and achieve their goals, as they do athletes and individuals all over the world.
Todd Wilson, Operations Manager at QNT, said; “I’m absolutely ecstatic about this partnership. It’s a unique opportunity to provide not just the best products at the best price, but also the best education on how to use them to get the best results. We’re really looking forward to seeing BUCS athletes reap the benefits”
Through Club QNT BUCS athletes will have exclusive access to the highest quality sports nutrition at a huge 33% discount. Additionally our student athletes will benefit from clear and simple information and education on the best way to use the products to get maximum benefits.
BUCS Chief Executive, Karen Rothery added, “This is a really exciting partnership for BUCS and one which enables us to support our student athletes achieve their sporting goals. This partnership provides real value to our members and we are looking forward to working with QNT to further enhance the student sporting experience through their expertise”.
Former GB Swimmer and eight time’s world record holder Mark Foster who is working with QNT to offer support and guidance to the next generation of GB athletes said; "There are many aspects to the life of a competitive athlete. For me, nutrition was key and QNT provided some of the best products I've used. The testing element is also vital, but can sometimes be a stressful process. In all my years working with QNT I've never once had an issue. I came to rely on them for support and guidance on issues relating to nutrition."
QNT’s products and information is based on cutting edge academic research by world leading sports scientists and used by some of the world’s top athletes. Professor Rodger Harris, consultant for Club QNT was recently awarded a lifetime achievement award in recognition of his ‘outstanding contribution to the Science of Sports Nutrition’, the first award of its kind ever given by the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN). Olympic silver medallist and three times World Champion Colin Jackson CBE, supports the young athletes of tomorrow by helping QNT continue to offer nutritional guidance and support; “If I’m helping young athletes achieve their goals then I’m happy. That’s what QNT have always done, be a part of the package that comes together to produce a top performance.”

Notes for editor:
QNT are in the process of working towards receiving full accreditation as part of the Informed Sport quality assurance programme for Sports nutrition products in conjunction with HFL Laboratories.
Ahead of the launch of BUCS partnership with QNT, HFL Laboratories batch tested QNT product for WADA prohibited substances. The product passed HFL screening and reflects the requirements of WADA and the Informed Sport programme.
HFL testing does cannot guarantee complete non-contamination, however the risks of contamination are reduced. BUCS also works with 100% me to support, inform and educate athletes by providing anti-doping advice and guidance and to ‘be clean and stay clean’.
