Selection for this event is governed by British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) and a selection policy is being developed in conjunction with BUCS.

The international University Sports Federation (FISU) organise a series of World University Championships (WUCs) in even-numbered years.

In 2016, eight British athletes went out to Montebelo o Velho, Portugal to compete in the World University Championships, with a number of competitive performances. Canoe sprint athlete Joe Beevers claimed the only medal of the games, winning a bronze medal in the K1M 1000m final.

If any athletes are interested in competing in the 2018 FISU University World Championships, they should register their interest by contacting Nick Fowler on Nick.Fowler@britishcanoeing.org.uk. Please note that selection for this event is planned to take place at the June regatta in Nottingham.
