Postgraduate Sports

The Union has 62 sports clubs, and have been working to keep them accessible to postgraduate students. Last year hundreds of PG students joined a sports club, ranging from swimming to rock climbing. Sports clubs are not just a place for those wishing to compete competitively, they are also a way to relieve stress and get out of the lab or the library. 


This year at least 68% of our Clubs have training hours that are postgraduate friendly (after 5pm and on weekends) and the vast majority have at least two sessions a week that are accessible.


To see all of the clubs and societies we have on offer, click HERE. If you have any questions about which clubs are most accessible for Postgrads, you can also contact your Activities and Opportunities Officer, Oli Gray: o.gray@uea.ac.uk

 

Three founding principles of PGSU sport services

  1. Sports sessions to be affordable, every week, on the same day, and at an accessible time.
  2. To continue as many of these services over the summer as we can. Postgrads are all still here and need services.
  3. For sessions to be postgrad exclusive and run by fellow PGs, when possible, to help people feel comfortable getting involved.

 

 

Postgraduate Yoga

Every Wednesday at 5.30 - 7pm. Simply turn up to Bookable Room 1, in Union House, and pay £1 when you get there to the instructor, Finn or if you want to avoid being disappointed if the room is full, book a place online. Mats are provided, but bring your own if you can. All levels welcome.

Want to exercise at a time that's good for you?

£1 Swim Tickets - The Union also run a special swim deal for postgraduate students. You can pick up off-peak swim cards for only a pound at the SU reception, upstairs in Union House. UEA Sport also actively encourage groups of postgraduates to book out sports facilities and do their own sessions.

We're currently working with the SportsPark to offer a wider variety of £1 sessions for postgraduates, stay tuned for more info!

ueactive

ueactive is a programme of fun activities for students and staff at UEA, to help develop a healthy lifestyle and promote a sporting habit for life. It is part of the UEA/HE University Sport Activation project, supported by Sport England, UEA and UEA SU. Sessions take place at the Sports Park.
