The University of Essex offers scholarships to talented students who wish to fulfil their sporting ambitions whilst studying for a degree.
If you are competing at regional or international level in your sport you could be eligible for a scholarship. Athletes at the University
of Essex form part of an athlete centred model that focuses on progressing you in your sport, working with Sport Scientists, Performance
Coaches, Strength and Conditioning Coaches, Performance Lifestyles Advisors, Physiotherapists and Academic Mentors.
Please note scholarship offers are dependent on you securing and taking up your place at the University of Essex and signing the sport scholarship
athlete agreement. Scholarships are paid in 3 termly instalments, subject to a termly progress review, as set out in the athlete agreement.

You can find a list of BUCS sports on the BUCS website.
Please include a personal reference, confirming your current sporting status and confirm the goals you are working towards, from a
suitably qualified person such as your performance coach, S&C coach or performance lifestyle advisor. Please include their contact details.
Please only submit .doc or .docx files.
Please upload a 3-4 minute highlight reel / video footage of you competing in your sport. This can be an upload to YouTube or

Prospective students are invited to submit an application prior to accepting a place at the University of Essex. You will receive written confirmation
of whether your application has been successful should you choose to study at the University of Essex. Scholarships are only valid once you enrol onto
your course and sign the sport scholarship athlete agreement. Please note individuals applying for scholarships in team sports will be subject to a
trial and squad selection process and scholarship tiers may be adjusted accordingly.
