Using the Complete University Guide data collected from 126 institutions for the 2021-22 academic year, the report aims to provide further information for members and other stakeholders about the trends in higher education sport.
The report is split into three sections:
- An overview of what higher education sport contributes to the wider sport ecosystem, including staff, facilities, and sport and physical activity opportunities
- An analysis and discussion of what makes the BUCS top 20 institutions unique
- The trends across the four iterations of the survey completed, with a particular look at what has changed since COVID-19
The BUCS Insight Team will aim to publish a similar report annually using the annual survey data.
In addition to the report, an appendix can be found below which summarises the answers of the 2021-22 survey, including how many institutions answered each question. We have also included the questions asked in the 2021-22 survey to provide context.
