The World University Championships are for national representative teams (GB & NI) and are held every two years in various countries across the world.


EUSA (European Universities Sports Association) events are ’tournament winners’ tournaments for Universities and allow the top Universities in the BUCS Competitions to compete against the best Universities in Europe. EUSA events take place each year, and alternate annually between the EUSA Games (a single multi-sport event) and the EUSA Championships (a series of single-sport events).
