University water polo competitions in the UK are provided by BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) which operates throughout the academic year and provides well organised and exciting polo tournaments, with UK University Champions being crowned at the end of the year.
University water polo in England is of a high standard. Many players who compete within the university leagues concurrently play for club teams, while a significant number of players also represent their respective nations in international competition.
Additionally, many UK universities employ professional coaches and invest significant resources into the continued development of their water polo student-athletes. Accordingly, a range of sports scholarships are available at British universities for committed water polo players.
