Varsity OATH


The idea behind the ‘Varsity Oath’ is to embed a culture of respect, fair play and pride amongst the participants and the spectators of the Varsity Series 2017-18.

As ambassadors for the Universities of the Varsity Series, Erin Mills and John House, at The Students’ Union at UWE and University of Bristol Students Union, will uphold the vision, spirit and values of the Varsity Series 2017-18.

By declaring the oath, participants and spectators promise to ensure the event continues in a fair and respectful way manner. The oath also sets out a commitment from the spectators to respect and value all competitors and to be grateful and considerate to the communities and facilities in which the Varsity Series take place.



The UWE vs. UoB Varsity Series is a showcase and celebration of student sports and societies in the city of Bristol, and I am proud and honoured to represent my university in the competition.

On behalf of all competitors and spectators, I promise that I will take part in Varsity and ensure that we compete it true spirit, displaying, fair play and respect for our opposition.

We will give our all for our team mates and our university and will abide by the rules that govern our sport or activity.

We will respect all competitors and spectators of the race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age or social class and will respect all the facilities and communities in which the competition takes place. 

We win together, we lose together and we compete together.

Pride, Respect, Fair play.

This is the spirit of the Varsity Series 2017-18, and I am proud to represent my university in the competition.

In support of this both institutions have developed a Student Conduct Policy which we would ask all Competitors and Supporters alike to read and adopt.

Two Universities, One City
