The Northumbria University volleyball programme is the best student volleyball programme in Britain and attracts some of the very best athletes from the UK and abroad. In 2018 our men’s and women’s team won nine out of 10 titles in both BUCS and National League.

Northumbria’s volleyball programme focuses on BUCS as their main competition and both men’s and women’s team compete in the BUCS Premier North league.
