How to apply

There will be two rounds of decision making on Sports Scholarship for entry in September 2022:

  • Round One: Deadline for applications, midnight on Sunday 15 May
  • Round Two: Deadline for applications, midnight on Sunday 4 September

If you have received your offer by May 2022 please apply through round one.

We invite applications from talented individuals who are competing at a high level within their sport, as long as it is a British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) sport BUCS Sports or para sport BUCS Para Sport (i.e. a sport at which universities compete). The criteria upon which these scholarships are considered are below.

All applicants are required to evidence how they meet the following criteria (on a separate form) – these criteria are primarily UK-based and are indicative of the levels rather than being definitive due to variations by sport. It is not expected that players will necessarily meet all the criteria at any one level. Therefore, it is important that players use evidence in support of their application to indicate their ‘level’ of current performance.
