Joe is a third year medical student with a burning passion for all things ocean that has only grown since partaking in White shark conservation in South Africa last summer! Being relatively new to the diving scene, he takes every opportunity he can to get involved with the club. As Vice President, he helps the other committee members and the President in the day-to-day running of the society and is always reachable by email or over a pint at the pub!

Once awarded a mug entitled 'The World's Okayest Diver', Chris has been
around in UBUC for far longer than he cares to admit. He's taught and
dived around the world but is always proud to call UK waters his home.
No longer a student, Chris has plenty of free time on his hands and
dedicates far too much of it to training new divers. As Training
Officer, Chris is in charge of all our Ocean Diver and Sports Diver
trainees. For all your training-related questions and activities, drop
him a message or find him underwater.
Will is a third year Cellular and Molecular Medicine student, joining UBUC last year as a fresher. He originally qualified through PADI in the UK before going to Australia to qualify as an Advanced Open Water and Rescue diver (Sports Diver equivalents). Will looks after and overseeing the club’s finances.
Felix is a second year Zoology student whose interest in the ocean was first sparked by Attenborough’s Blue Planet series. He gained an impromptu PADI Open Water Diver qualification whilst in his gap year in Mexico and is currently working towards a BSAC Sports Diver qualification. As Equipment officer he looks after and maintains the UBUC equipment or as his friends put it “washing the wee out of people’s wetsuits”.
