The FISU World University Championship (WUC) Department created the International FISU Volunteer Program implemented from 2016 WUC season. This program has been carefully studied internally and is based on clear objectives and the timeline developed below. After a good first season, the WUC Department has decided to run the program for the 2018 season.


The objectives below have been defined to benefit the three different stakeholders of this program:

  • Offer worldwide volunteers the possibility to gain experience at an international sport event and develop event management and communication skills. It is also an opportunity to create worldwide contact with the International University Sport community;

  • Allow FISU to increase its network and database of future leaders in sports management;

  • Give the Organising Committee the opportunity to benefit from outsiders’ vision on their event and an added value of key volunteers in important organisational areas.

General terms

  • A defined number of international volunteers per WUC will be agreed with each OC;

  • The Organising Committee is in charge of local transportation, accommodation and full board;

  • The volunteers or their NUSF are in charge of the travel costs.

Selection criteria

  • Reasons of application and relevance in the frame of the WUC;

  • Language skills & field of study;

  • Work & volunteer experience;

  • Sport knowledge;

  • Geographic location.
