The Leeds University Union Sub Aqua Club (LUUSAC) is a branch of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) based at the University of Leeds, West Yorkshire. We run training for divers of all levels and offer cross over Courses for all non-BSAC diving organisations.
Every September we take on approximately 30 people who have never dived before, and throughout the year, we train them to BSAC Sports Diver standard. We also take on people who have qualified in other organisations and train them to Sports Diver standard or above. The training for qualified divers is dependant upon the current level of training. For more information on converting from another diving association please view our qualification Conversion Chart to see what steps you can take to further your training.
Although LUUSAC is a university branch we do not limit membership to students - in fact we have a solid core of young professional and older members. If you are interested in joining LUUSAC simply visit us at the sports fair during the universities freshers week or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. Optionally we meet at the Eldon Pub every Thursday from 20.30.
If you have never dived before and want to try before you buy, we run try dive sessions throughout the year. Our main try dive sessions are at the start of the academic year (September/October). If you want to find out more about the try dives or information for new divers please look at our New Diver and Try Dives pages.
At LUUSAC we are committed to providing SCUBA training at the cheapest possible price, whilst maintaining the highest standards. To this day we remain one of the cheapest places to learn SCUBA in the United Kingdom and in 2011 we won numerous BSAC awards for the quality of our training. For a full break down of our costs, please visit the Prices page.
As a British club we do the majority of our diving in UK waters, with one overseas training trip per year. The prospect of diving in the UK is not as terrible as many people imagine - in fact with the United Kingdoms rich naval history and largely unknown marine biodiversity, it can be far more thrilling than most foreign dive sites.
