For Universities

The world’s universities are not only places of learning but also provide sport opportunities for their students. This may be in offering competitive sport among universities, recreational opportunities, or even sport related education. Healthy living, wellbeing, and experiences from sport are all valuable elements that students receive demonstrating that universities play an important role in the promotion and delivery of sport.

In addition to what is already done on their campuses, universities have various ways in which to engage in university sport:


International Day of University Sport
Member Associations
Scholarship Programme
FISU Volunteer Leaders Academy
FISU Student Ambassadors
Healthy Campus
Young Reporters Programme


All programmes
