U.K. University

Athletic Scholarships

Some U.K. universities are able to reward talented athletes who have a track record of excellence in athletics with a scholarship to support them in reaching their full potential alongside their studies. A scholarship can be offered in a number of different ways, whilst some scholarships may help to reduce tuition, it is most common to receive a scholarship that covers the cost of athletic services, providing the athlete with structured personalised athletic training and support.

The standard required to achieve an athletic scholarship will vary between different universities, though we are happy to provide free guidance and support for any student who wishes to be evaluated for a potential UK university athletic scholarship.
