BUCS Girls Can

Since it’s launch in 2015, This Girl Can has swept the nation encouraging and empowering women to get physically active. Each academic year British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) coordinate a special week of female-focused action, engaging with universities across the country.

If you didn’t already know, we run our very own ‘Uni Girls Can‘ programme which offers a range of activities and opportunities for women to get involved with during their time at university. That’s why as part of the ‘BUCS Girls Can’ week, we’re highlighting all the fantastic things you can get have a go at. Have a look at whats on offer below.
