UPSU Scuba Society is for Plymouth University students that have an interest in scuba diving! From the experienced diver to those completely new to the sport, everyone is welcome!
Founded in 2014 we've come a long way, starting with a few members and being shortlisted for Best New Society in our first year, to being the Society of the year, Give it a Go Champions, awarded Gold ICONS, and now being one of the biggest societies with over 150 members! Plus your Chairman was shortlisted for Chair of the Year 2017/18 and your Treasurer winning Treasurer of the year 2017/2018!
As a society we are affiliated with a local dive centre - Aquanauts - and offer discounted diving on Tuesdays, Wednesdays (boat dives), and Thursdays as well as competitive discounts on all diving courses! Scuba society members, due to this association, are offered cheaper deals for their HSE prerequisites.
The £5 membership is for the society only, so you can take part in socials, trips and events. It doesn't include diving!
The £35 membership includes the society membership and a 12 month membership with Aquanauts, which makes you eligible for all the diving discounts and lets you dive with UPSU Scuba Society!
Don't try and buy a committee membership - we can see which memberships you buy so will catch you out!!
**Please only purchase one membership!**
Socials and Events
Throughout the year we run regular socials (drinking and non-drinking) and events for members. This year we have loads of fun socials, charity events, talks and volunteering projects - keep an eye out for the first Buddy-line social! We're also creating a "Divers Against Debris" project this year, including beach cleans, ocean cleans and other green impact events!
We're also running our dive holiday to Malta! Keep an eye out at the start of the year as there will only be limited spaces!
If you have any more questions or want to find out more, don't miss our welcome meeting on the 2nd October! Also, don't forget to come along to our stall in the Rolle Marquee at the Sports and Societies Fair on the 20th September!
Feel free to drop us an email and we'll reply as soon as possible, and please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with everything we're doing!
