Here's everything you need to know
The University of Warwick Volleyball Club prides itself on being one of the most international clubs on campus, open to everyone and catering all skillsets, from complete beginners to advanced competitive players.
The club is divided into three tiers of competition and commitment level, with a total of 6 teams competing either in BUCS league or within the regional West Midlands Volleyball Association. Joining any of these teams happens via a trials process at the start of Term 1. The club, in an effort to give everyone as many opportunities as possible, tries to keep an eye out, promoting mobility between teams and potentially hosting further trials in later terms.
Disclaimer: due to BUCS regulation, only enrolled students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree at the university can compete in BUCS league
Men's and Women's 1st teams are UWVC's highest performance level, and part of the Warwick Sport Performance Program, offering specialised technical training, global fitness, and strength and conditioning sessions, as well as access to physiotherapy and nutritional guidance. Belonging to this team provides huge benefits, with the most on and off-court training at the cost of being the highest level of commitment within the club.
2nd teams are an avenue for players to continue improving and competing at BUCS level. This team has similar competitive opportunities to 1st team (playing in BUCS league, enrolling in Student Cup, etc.), while limiting compulsory trainings to the regular on-court sessions.
WMVA players have access to the opportunity to play in a unique league relative to the other teams. Being a regional league, these teams are open to anyone at the University (including post-docs and staff). Much like second team, it is a great place for players in love with the sport to continue to challenge themselves and grow.
After the end of the regular court season, UWVC offers a transition to beach volleyball in Term 3, with the end goal of BUCS beach league and Beach Cup tournament. Whilst the organisation of beach varies yearly, it typically includes specialised beach oriented court and fitness training.
Outside the volleyball court, the club regularly holds numerous events, from movie nights to Wednesday POP! (a Warwick institution), sauna sessions or karaoke, for any and all to come socialise, relax, meet new people and knit together the entire UWVC family.
You and your parents will meet your allocated Veterinary Educational Consultant who will act as your vet school tutor, they will explain our process and answer any questions that you have.

Your Development Plan
With your vet school tutor, you will develop a personalised vet revision timetable for the entire process. Using our formula, we will take you through each and every stage of your process. It will cover all of the aspects below including your Animal Work Experience, Veterinary Medicine Personal Statement development and Vet School Interview Questions. After developing your plan, you will have an outline and better understanding of how to tackle the admissions process. Your Vet School Tutor will guide you throughout this process til you begin studying for your vet degree.
Vet Work Experience
Your Mentor will show you how to get vet work experience in veterinary practices, farms, stables, kennels, zoos, virtual settings and more. Sometimes farm work experience is hard to come by, but your vet school tutor will provide animal work experience ideas for you. Many students struggle with how to get veterinary experience, but your tutor will provide you with vet work experience ideas and the best email template that you can use to arrange the experience.
Vet School Personal Statement
By working through our Veterinary Medicine Personal Statement Guide you will develop an initial draft of your veterinary personal statement.

We have a number of veterinary personal statement examples that we use to help frame and guide your own vet personal statement.
