Australian University Sport (AUS) acknowledges that universities have participated and developed university sport for many years through events or other university based sporting opportunities. Non member sporting organisations including state and national sporting organisations also place high importance on the university demographic with similar events aimed to drive participation. In recognition of this, AUS has an event sanctioning program for intervarsity events managed by AUS, universities or other external groups. To find out more please download the Sanctioned eventsGuidelines and application form.
Level 1 – AUS nationally sanctioned events
Level 1 sanctioned events are strategically aligned with AUS objectives. These events can be organised and delivered by member universities, sporting organisations or external parties. The events are open to competitors from all universities.
Level 2 – AUS member university sanctioned events
Level 2 sanctioned events are hosted by a member university, university club or student group of a member university. These events are open to competitors from all over Australia or select groups of students and fulfill a need to develop sport within the university sector either on campus or through intervarsity competition.
Level 3 – AUS endorsed events
Level 3 endorsed events are coordinated by sporting organisations, external event providers or not for profit organisations and are open to competitors from all over Australia and have business strategies in place to attract the university student demographic.
