Students are used to competing against other universities but today will see a different kind of race - with students furiously pedalling in submarines along the sea bed.
It's all part of an international submarine race in Gosport in what is Europe's biggest covered water freshwater space.
Students from universities around the world will battle to win this unique engineering and sporting event - where pilots in SCUBA gear pedal in a huge tank the size of a football pitch.
Competing teams have come from Canada, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, USA as well as Bath, Plymouth and Warwick.
Submariners from Portsmouth's HMS Sultan went to London's Embankment to support the Submariners Association Annual Memorial Service.
The group were among more than 250 members of the submariner community.
The service was instituted in 1923 following on from the unveiling of the National Submarine Memorial in 1922, is held on the Sunday before the national Remembrance Day Parade.
The Submariners and veterans marched from the anti-submarine Q-ship HMS President to the memorial.
The open air service was followed by the laying of 30 wreaths with a salute by the head of the Navy's Submarine service.
A Roll Call of the submarines who lost their lives was also read by submariners of several generations during the service.
Mechanic Submariner Charles Edwards said: "It was an honour and privilege to represent HMS Sultan on this occasion, to hear the names of all the submarines lost throughout the Submarine service’s 112 year history brings home the reality of the occasion, with each name a boats crew is lost.”
As good as new - the verdict today of veterans who once served on an historic submarine which is being restored. Work on the exterior of HMS Alliance - Britain's only remaining world war two era boat - has just been completed.
Richard Jones reports from the Royal Navy Submarine Museum at Gosport and speaks to veteran Mike Draper, Chris Munns, Director of the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and curator Bob Mealings.
Historians have been remembering an extraordinary event in Hastings in 1919 when a German U-Boat was washed up on the beach.
Derek Johnson speaks to Steve Peak from the Hastings Fishermen's Museum and we hear from a man whose great-grandfather boarded the submarine - with tragic results.
Historians have been remembering an extraordinary incident more than 100 years ago in which a German U-Boat was washed up on the beach in Hastings. The submarine had been surrendered to the Allies on this day in 1919 but was washed ashore during bad weather.
Hundreds came out to see it but authorities gave the order for it to be broken up. We'll have much more on this story over the course of the day.
