Sports Scholarships

Our Sports Scholarship Scheme helps some of the UK’s most talented young athletes to reach their sporting potential while balancing the demands of studying at a top university.

Many of our scholarships are provided thanks to the generosity of donors who enjoy tracking the progress of their Scholar, watching them compete and getting to know them during their time at the University and beyond graduation.

Sports Scholarships provide the most talented student athletes with comprehensive support packages tailored to the needs of each individual. Support can include specialist coaching, strength and conditioning training, physiotherapy, sports psychology, performance analysis, and lifestyle management.

In recent years current and former scholarship recipients have represented their countries in sports including Cricket, Cycling, Fencing, Golf, Hockey, Lacrosse, Netball, Rowing, Rugby, Sailing, Shooting and Tennis. Eight competed at the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics.

Will you help us develop tomorrow's champions?

It is enormously satisfying to be able to help develop the potential of talented young cricketers at our University, and watch their skill and confidence grow.
