All of our sports scholars are elite athletes who are dedicated to performing at the highest level in both their sport and studies. They represent BU in British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS), competing individually or within leagues. Some scholars have gone on to compete internationally and continue to excel in their sport.

With the support of the SportBU team and their sports scholarship, all of our scholars have access to a range of support (physical, financial and emotional) to help them be the very best that they can be.

Read on to discover their stories. Some detail their sporting journeys so far, while others are a first-hand account of a particular event or competition.
