Placing students needs and motivations at the heart of the process, the Sport Review is ultimately striving towards providing a world-class competition programme.
BUCS has worked in partnership with National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) to review and develop new competition offers, alongside consultation with member institutions.
The Sport Review is led by an Implementation Group, made up of BUCS and member institution staff.
A summary of key stages to date:
Sport Review - Cycle One
Cycle One of the Sport Review concluded in February 2019, with 10 changes to the BUCS Competitions Programme approved. For more information, read the results of cycle one here.
