This Girl Can is Sport England’s campaign to get women and girls moving, regardless of shape, size and ability. Join us this week and support This BUCS Girl Can week.

Research shows that gender has a significant influence on activity levels – currently, about 41.7% of men play sport at least once a week, compared to around 31.6% of women. That means two million fewer women get regular exercise, despite a healthy and active lifestyle being proven to be important for us all to maintain good physical and mental wellbeing. 

Inspired by the message, BUCS have taken the lead in championing sport and physical activity for women in the Higher Education sector through the This BUCS Girl Can campaign. 

This BUCS Girl Can Week, 20 - 24 November aims to highlight the huge potential there is to get physically active at universities across the UK and demonstrate the breadth of opportunities which the Higher Education sector facilitates to engage women students and staff.

We've got a range of activities on from Monday 20 - Friday 24 November, and they're all free to do.
