Welcome

Welcome to the University of Portsmouth Sub-Aqua Club (UPSAC). We are a University Society and a British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) branch.

We're able to offer training, awesome dive trips, and some great socials!

If you are new to diving then, no problem, we are able to teach you in-house.

We also welcome qualified divers from any recongnised training organisation, a diver is a diver to us. All you need to do is present your log book and qualification.

Diving truely is an amazing experience that touches people and changes their lives. Many of our Club members who join in their 2nd or 3rd years really regret not joining as a Fresher to pack more diving into their time at University and advance their training further.

We do not use this Web site much and prefer social media to communicate with our members: UPSAC's Facebook group

Students are able to join via the Students Union Web site page: UPSAC Online Membership Page

Alumni and non-students are able to join by speaking to the membership secretary
