European university championships
Volleyball is part of the BUCS international programme and is part of European university competitions.
European Universities Sports Association (EUSA) events see the top BUCS universities compete against the best universities in Europe. They alternate annually between the EUSA Games (a single multi-sport event) and the EUSA Championships (a series of single-sport events).
Our men's volleyball team competed in EUSA events in 2012/13 and 2014/15.
