Nationals Div 1

Nationals Div 1 is the premier tertiary sporting competition. Teams must qualify to be eligible to compete in Nationals Div 1, via a top ten finish at the 2017 Australian University Games, or promotion from the Nationals Div 2 event. Nationals Div 1 replaces the Australian University Games competition.

It’s all new. It’s adrenalin charged. It’s your chance to soar higher in the sporting arena, university and life.

Representing your university at such a large sport event is a great opportunity to meet people from VU and across Australia.
