Welcome to University of Birmingham Sport (UBSport).
Sport takes centre stage at Birmingham – not only on the playing fields but as a key part of our academic portfolio. We are one of the UK’s leading sporting universities, regularly finishing in the top three of the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) championship. We call it ‘Playing with Pride’ and one of the reasons why student athletes from across the country and around the world choose to study train and compete here.
University of Birmingham is internationally recognised for our outstanding research in sport, exercise and movement across a diverse range of academic disciplines, (from physical education and dance to sports psychology) and world leaders in researching new methods of sports coaching. Not surprisingly, the fastest men and women on the planet have chosen Birmingham as their base ahead of London 2012. Team Jamaica, including Usain Bolt and a galaxy of track and field stars will be training at the University.
At Birmingham, sport is for all - from world class athlete to general fitness. The power of sport to motivate and inspire goes so much further than sporting ability. From keeping fit and leading healthy balanced lifestyles to learning a new activity, you will never have a better opportunity to get involved, have fun and make new friends. The rest of this website tells you more about the world of opportunity at UBSport and the wide range of high quality services and facilities we offer. If you still have any queries, we have a large team of professionals to help you make your time at university the best years of your life.
