BDE STAPS: what is it?

BDE UFRAPS is the student association for Sports Science (STAPS) students in Lyon.

Its aim is to bring together students at UFR STAPS de Lyon in order to defend and promote their individual and collective interests.

The action taken by this association falls into 3 well-defined areas:

- Liven up student life by proposing sporting, entertainment and charity events in connection with the sport sector.

- Provide various student services such as the creation of a range of sports clothes specific to the Sports Science faculty, everyday services available on its premises (heat up your meal, print and bind your files or relax with friends) and special offers proposed by BDE’s partners (cheap professional match tickets, or 50% off meal deals).

- Encourage students’ success by providing past exam papers, defending students’ rights on the Board and providing information on the university ecosystem and on your course.

Students can join the association for 5 euros at the start of the year if they wish to access BDE UFRAPS’s services and events.
