The aim of the Cardiff Met Sports Bursary & Scholarship Scheme is to assist students of exceptional sporting ability to develop their academic and sporting talents to their fullest potential, and thereby to encourage the development of University sport. The scheme offers a learner-centered experience in which scholars receive guidance and support, enabling them to take greater control of their lifestyle to facilitate the co-development of their academic and sporting potential. Recipients of our scholarship will receive financial support up to a maximum of £1000. Applicants should be of International standard, close to or of the equivalent level of performance. Priority may be given to those who would be able to represent Cardiff Met in BUCS competitions.

The University can provide the following services which relate specifically to the sport for which the scholarship is held:

  • Conditioning/Fitness Testing and Monitoring: Access to fitness rooms and weight training facilities, advice on fitness training and fitness testing at regular intervals
  • Nutrition: Dietary analysis coupled with advice about the specific nutritional requirements of intensive training and high-level performance
  • Sports Physiotherapy and Sports Massage cover
  • Gold Card Membership of the University Sport and Leisure Club
