UEA+Sport Individual Scholarship
If you are an aspiring student-athlete - either prospectively or currently studying at UEA - we want to support you in your journey to achieve your highest potential both academically and on the sporting field.
UEA+Sport offers a wide range of facilities and support for our top athletes and sporting programmes, ensuring you have the best possible opportunities to maximise your potential whilst studying at UEA. Led by a strong team of dedicated and innovative coaching staff, and supported by a range of highly skilled practitioners, we offer you a high-quality level of support to enable you to succeed. Recent scholars have been successful in BUCS, Local, Regional and National competitions with many also attaining International success. This is achieved by ensuring each athlete can thrive in their own environment.
Our holistic and athlete-centred approach to developing performance has showcased success with many athletes competing at age-group and senior World and European Championships, and the BUCS programme rising nearly 20 places in just four years - with many teams dominating the local and regional landscape in their sport. We welcome applications from para-athletes and have a track record of supporting para-athletes on both our UEA Sport Scholarship and Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) programmes. For more information on sport at UEA and how we can help you achieve your academic and sporting aspirations please take a look at our performance sport brochure or contact us via email@example.com.
