BATH University - Sport Scholarship Scheme

  • Bachelor, Master
  • Partially Funded
  • Always Active

The University of Bath was the first UK university to offer sports scholarships and today 50 student athletes who have displayed potential for success both academically and athletically have benefited from our scholarships.

The scholarships are supported by alumni and friends of the University who are passionate about giving talented young people the opportunity to benefit from Bath’s world-leading sporting and academic environment.

Some of the country’s top athletes have benefited from our scholarships, including London 2012 Olympic silver medallists Michael Jamieson (swimming) and Samantha Murray (modern pentathlon).


To be eligible for a scholarship athletes must:

  • have been offered a place on a course at the University
  • demonstrate the potential to compete at elite level internationally and contribute to the University’s British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) points
  • be recommended by their own coach and/or the University’s coach in their sport

Athletes will continue to receive their scholarship throughout their University course subject to an annual academic and sporting review.
