The Selection Process for the 2019 British Universities Kayaking Expedition is now open.

This first stage of the application process is a written application, in PDF format, consisting of no more than two sides of A4 telling us why you are an ideal member of the 2019 British Universities Kayaking Expedition Team.

2019 British Universities Kayaking Expedition

Make sure that you include your name, date (or at least year) of birth, where and what you study and what year you are in. Other than that it’s a free-for all, but the following information would be a good starter for ten:

• a brief resume of your experience
• why you want to go on the trip
• what you can offer the team (medical knowledge, photography/video skills (and kit), web design, blogging/writing articles, prior expedition experience, etc etc)
• a brief summary of any media you have had published (magazines, blogs, websites you’ve deigned, youtube/instagram feeds you run, etc).

Make sure that you include at least two photos in your application, one mug shot (so we know who everyone is if/when you make it to the selection weekend) and one boating shot of you!

Please send applications to If you don’t get an e-mail confirming receipt of your application, get in touch!

Note that anyone invited on the selection weekend will have their application uploaded to the internet (i.e. submitting an application gives us your permission to do this).

We stop accepting applications on the 7th October 2018! If you only ever meet one deadline this year, make sure that it is this one!
