The Athletic Union has 49 different sports clubs including golf.
The clubs in the Athletic Union are open to all students.
The Athletic Union, or AU, is responsible for student sport clubs at the University of Exeter. This includes competitive fixtures, recreational pursuits and local, regional, national and international competition.
Many of our sports clubs compete in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sports) inter-university competition. We enter a large number of teams and individuals each year. In the 2011/12 academic year Exeter finished in seventh position in the final BUCS rankings of 146 Higher Education institutions.
The clubs are open to all students, whether you are a future Olympian or interested in trying a sport for the very first time. Clubs range from hockey, rugby and cricket to the more unusual speleology, jui-jitsu and sub aqua - there really is something for everyone.
The AU also organises many events throughout the year including a number of Varsity matches and the renowned AU Dinner.
The Athletic Union Office is open to visitors from 10:00-16:00, Monday - Friday (09:00-16:00 on Wednesdays). If you have any enquiries regarding student sport please feel free to come and speak to us in person, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
