Welcome to SUSAC!

New to Diving?

Then let's learn to dive!
What are we offering?
We're offering the BSAC Ocean Diver course, starting in October 2021. The course price will be around £300 which includes all costs, including your SUSAC membership and your BSAC (the national governing body) membership.
This is a great price to learn to dive. We include nitrox and drysuit training as standard, and competitor courses cost about £600 for the same. You can learn more about ocean diver on our main website here.
Wow, how so cheap?
All our instructors are volunteers, so their time is free to you! It's that simple. Fully insured and qualified, highly experienced instructors for free. The University also provide some funding to make it as accessible as possible to you.
When are you running it?
Initial pool training and theory training takes place on the 23rd and 24th October. You need to free for both of these days. You'll then attend one open water weekend with us. This could be either the 6th and 7th November, or the 20th and 21st November. You can see all these dates and more on our calendar.
Sign me up! What do I need to do?
Demand for this course is always incredibly high and we can't take on everyone that we want to. If you want to do this course, you'll need to give us your email address and we'll send out more information and a sign up form from the 4th October. You can give us your email address by clicking here. We'll provide comprehensive details and instructions and then email out a form where you can sign up.
Sounds great, but I have more questions
