Sports scholarships Scheme

    We take great pride in the fact that some of the most talented sports men and women in the country choose to study with us. We also understand how difficult it can be to balance the demands of competing at the highest level with a full academic life when you first arrive at university.


    To be eligible for an Anglia Ruskin sports scholarship you must meet the following criteria:

    • Have a firm acceptance, or conditional offer for an Anglia Ruskin University undergraduate degree course
    • Need to show evidence of competing at national level, or evidence of having previously achieved national ranking and/or have the potential to (re)achieve this standard
    • Complete the application form outlining your sporting interests and achievements
    • On acceptance of the award be prepared to sign a contract agreeing to represent Anglia Ruskin University in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competitions and to promote the work of Anglia Ruskin University, locally, regionally and nationally.
