Student Voucher Scheme

Introduced by the British Judo Association in 2012, the Student Voucher Scheme (SVS) is a membership offer specifically for university students within England who are starting judo for the first time, or returning to the sport.

The scheme entitles students to a 50% discount on a 1-year Full Membership to the British Judo Association, meaning you can join the Association and be fully insured for just £21.

Who is eligible for SVS?

The Student Voucher Scheme is open to anyone aged 18 years and older who is enrolled on a full or part-time course at an English-based university that’s also registered with the British Judo Association. You must not currently hold a British Judo Association Licence or have held one within the past three years.
