About Us

Make the most of your time at a coastal university and learn to scuba dive with one of the most established sports clubs at Sussex. The Sussex coast is rich with historic ship wrecks and amazing marine life. By this time next year you could be a qualified diver enjoying the local diving or diving abroad with friends.

The University of Sussex Sub Aqua Club has been operating for over thirty years and has trained hundreds of Sussex and Brighton university students to dive. We are one of the best equipped and friendliest clubs at the University of Sussex with dive gear for all our trainees and our own dive boat. We are run by our student committee.

We have a dedicated team of qualified diving instructors who give up their time for free as part of the Brit-ish Sub Aqua Club training system. BSAC is the largest dive club in the world and has been training divers in the UK and abroad for sixty years!

We provide safe and internationally recognised diver training from complete beginner to advanced. We run frequent local dive trips for both our qualified members and our trainees and we visit other parts of the UK like the South West and Scotland. We also organise over-seas trips to warm water locations. And it is not all dive dive dive – we are also a social club with loads going on throughout the year. Some of our members become friends for life!
