Welcome to Student Sport

At Birmingham, sport is for all – from world class athlete to general fitness. The power of sport to motivate and inspire goes so much further than sporting ability. From keeping fit and leading healthy balanced lifestyles to learning a new activity, you will never have a better opportunity to get involved, have fun and make new friends.

Our cutting edge research and work in this area is ensuring increased participation in sport and physical activity, transforming our talented students into elite athletes and pushing the boundaries of performance.

Not surprisingly, the fastest people on the planet chose Birmingham to complete their preparations for the London Olympics. Team Jamaica, including world and Olympic champion sprinters Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake rated Birmingham as their best pre-Olympic training base to-date.
