Your support for this event will help us populate an engaging afternoon of workshops and activities focussed around core leadership skills, such as motivating others, effective communication, and time management. You will be helping students here at Plymouth University to grow in confidence, up their skills and knowledge, and to broaden their networks, all of which will heighten their employability and future prospects.

Varsity 2018

Varsity is the sports challenge event of the year between the University of Plymouth and Plymouth Marjon University, Widely regarded as the highlight of the sporting calendar at both institutions, Varsity is steeped in history and for some students represents the last opportunity for them to play a competitive match in university colours.

Varsity originated as a challenge between the two institutions’ men’s rugby teams. Its primary aim was to raise money for charity, but it also helped fuel a healthy sporting rivalry between the institutuions which continues to this day. Over the years the Varsity programme has diversified to encompass as many sports as possible with around 250 students from each instutution competing for the prized Varsity trophy. 

In partnership with a number of city providers and using the facilities at both institutions, Varsity gives competitors and spectators the opportunity to experience first rate sports service provision; culminating in high profile matches at Plymouth Albion RFC and at Plymouth Argyle FC, Varsity also has a proud history of charitable fundraising, last year almost £17000 was raised for the two chosen charities

The whole event is a real local derby and is a brilliant conclusion a year of dedicated performances from the sportsmen and women of both institutions
