Sub Aqua

Learn to Scuba dive with the University of Sussex Sub-Aqua Club

Make the most of your time at a coastal university and learn to scuba dive with one of the most established sports clubs at Sussex. The Sussex coast is rich with historic ship wrecks and amazing marine life.

The University of Sussex Sub Aqua Club has been operating for over thirty years and has trained hundreds of Sussex and Brighton university students to dive. We are one of the best equipped and friendliest clubs at the University of Sussex with dive gear for all our trainees and our own dive boat.

We provide safe and internationally recognised diver training from complete beginner to advanced. We run frequent local dive trips for both our qualified members and our trainees and we visit other parts of the UK like the South West and Scotland. We also organise overseas trips to warm water locations. And it is not all dive dive dive – we are also a social club with loads going on throughout the year. Some of our members become friends for life!

Already a diver? Join Us!

We also welcome qualified divers from all agencies. You can continue your training with us to a higher level or simply come diving!

There is a weekly club night with theory and pool training commencing in the Autumn and open water training and diving from our boat commencing in the Spring.
