Helping you excel in your studies and your sport.
As well as a reputation for academic excellence, we also have a history of sporting success. We provide financial and specialist support to student athletes, to help maximise their sporting potential whilst studying at the University of Portsmouth.
We get that as a student athlete you’ll need to balance your training and competition, along with the pressure of achieving a high quality degree. We try and help you with this through the support of our sport scholarship scheme.
If you are competing at a regional or international level in your sport, you may be eligible for funding. Around 20 talented student athletes are awarded each year, worth between £2,000 and £6,000 each.
The scheme is open to all students, irrespective of nationality, year of study or academic course. Applications open in the summer, and scholarships are awarded at the start of the academic year in September. Focus is given to sports within the BUCS programme and Olympic and Paralympic sports, with other sports considered on a case by case basis.
