We accept novices and already-qualified divers alike. If you’ve never dived before then check out our try dives. If you’ve qualified with a non-BSAC agency then check out the cross-over page.

Regardless, start your underwater adventure by following these three easy steps. Any questions, then get in contact.

1. Register online with OUUEG

Let the committee know you have joined OUUEG by filling out the form below or via the link: https://forms.gle/1wX1bJWmMmgGuTZF6

Note: If you have a problem filling out the form above, please email [email protected]:

2. Register online with BSAC

In addition to the membership with our club OUUEG, you also need to be a member of BSAC, the national governing body of recreational diving in the United Kingdom.

You can register your BSAC membership on the BSAC membership website by clicking “Join via club” and searching for OUUEG.

Make sure you fill out the Medical Declaration Form also online during the registration process on BSAC.com. If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, you must seek advice from a medical referee before you dive.

You may need additional paperwork to dive. Please find more information about this including an up-to-date list of medical referees on the BSAC Medical Matters pages. You can also contact our Diving Officer for further info.

But don’t worry – the doctor can certify you as fit for diving unless there is a change in your medical condition. In practice, you’d probably only need to see the referee once and then submit a self-declaration every year alongside that initial certificate authorising you to do so.

You are not insured to scuba dive with OUUEG until you provide us with a medical certificate.

BSAC membership fee is £33 for Student Members and from £42 for Full Diving Members. Advanced Divers or Instructors might pay cheaper BSAC rates. Please refer to the BSAC website for accurate information.
