The Elite Athlete Programme is an opportunity for students who excel in sport, competing at regional, national or international level. This programme provides students with the support and resources to make them the very best athletes they can be. The Elite Athlete page showcases the students we are supporting this year and information of how to apply for next year.
Those accepted onto the programme will be invited to the welcome day, where we will work together to support their digital presence and create an online bio to promote the programme. Athletes will receive an exclusive merchandise kit and complementary University of Westminster sports membership. They will benefit from nutritional, sports psychology and mental skills workshops throughout the year. We will work closely with each individual to ensure athletes are gaining press traction from their sporting achievements. Athletes will receive financial support for competitions and games including the English Universities & World University Games.
The application process has several different stages from which the candidates will be assessed at a variety of stages, then shortlisted to the final stage where the review panel will make a final decision.
The first step to applying is to complete the online UWSU Elite Athlete Programme Application Form, which also details more information about the whole selection process.
