Australian University Nationals (Division 1)
UniSport Nationals is an annual event providing the opportunity for students at 43 member universities across Australia to compete in a number of national standard sporting competitions. Held annually in September, Nationals Division 1, presented by UniBank, consists of 29 different sport competitions contested across men’s, women’s, mixed and open categories, including Australian Rules Football, Beach Volleyball, Hockey and more. Only the top teams from previous event rankings can qualify for each of the competitions, meaning that rivalry between teams is fierce to claim the National Champion titles. The lower placing teams in each sport of the Division 1 competition risk relegation into Nationals Division 2 the following year.
