About Us

English Universities has been re-launched with a view of England participating in the upcoming 2017 Home Nations Event. The aim is to host regional trials, followed by national trials and then the event itself, offering students the opportunity to represent their country at the highest university sport level run by universities.

English Universities Committee

The Steering Group is made up of staff members of member institutions who are elected in by English University members at BUCS AGM. The current committee is Gemma Morris (University of Warwick), Barry Squires (Bournemouth University), Michael Barry (Bournemouth University) and Kiri Madhani (University of Nottingham), who have formally taken up the 4 committee positions of Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. A list of their contact details can be found here.

Regional & National Staff Groups

These group members are decided by application process through the committee group and consist of members from universities in the North, South and Midlands. A list of their contact details can be found here


The English Universities Affiliation Fees of £250 is to support the English Universities Programme in general as well as providing a contribution to the Home Nations Event that will be taking place in April.  There are a number of additional costs that are not able to be funded through the £250 Affiliations Fees which include a number of the trial costs, such as any facility hire, first aid, officials and any additional equipment needed to deliver trials.  In order to keep the initial Affiliations Fees low, it was agreed by the committee group, following feedback from English Universities that fees should be pro-rata across Universities, to impose an athlete contribution to attend trials to fund a number of the trial costs and apportion costs to those Universities that will be participating more with the programme.
