Each year, the University offers prospective and current students with a significant sporting talent, the opportunity to receive Elite and Performance Sport Scholarships of up to £1,500. The scholarships reflect the University’s commitment to the development of academic and sporting excellence among students.

Lizzie is studying for a Sports and Exercise Sciences degree and represents Kent and London and South East England for Rugby Union. And, Phil, who is completing a PhD in Sport and Exercise Science, is an Ultra-Marathon runner who came 2nd in the 50km world championships 2014 and is the current World Record holder for 100km on a treadmill.

As well as the financial award, Sports Scholars receive full use of the University fitness centre for training and their formal development.
