British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) came to Newcastle and Gateshead again in 2018. This was the third time the home clubs (Tyne ARC, Tyne United RC and Newcastle University RC) hosted British students' biggest winter rowing event, the BUCS 4s & 8s Head. The top university crews are amongst the best overall in the UK.

On Saturday 24 February 2018 100 or so beginner crews rowed over 3000 metres from Blaydon Station to Newburn. On Sunday 25 February 2018 about 300 intermediate and championship crews raced, half over 5000 metres from Scotswood to Newburn in the morning but on a shortended 3000 metres course in the afternoon due to wind and poor water conditions at Scotswood.

The winniners of the Open Victor Ludorum were Newcastle University, followed by University of London and Edinburgh University. Winners of the Women's Victor Ludorum were University of London, with Newcastle University second and Durham University third.
