If you are talented and have the necessary determination, you can go all the way to a full England Students cap.

Nominations are invited from any player currently playing for a BUCS registered university or associated league club (players must be enrolled students) and capable of performing at National league standard.

Nomination forms can be downloaded here (36kB) and are also available from the BUCS website.

The closing date for all submissions is November 25, 2013. Selection is via a committee who select a North and South squad to take part in a one-day trial on December 18, 2013 at Loughborough University. An extended training/trial squad is then invited back to a further session on January 2 and 3, 2014, also at Loughborough University.

The final England Students squad then proceeds to play International fixtures against the Portuguese National side in Lisbon, French Students in Blois, Wales Students and Scotland Universities at home.
