Oxford Brookes University is committed to the development of sporting excellence amongst its students, and each year offers a number of Sports Scholarships to students who show, or have shown, outstanding talent in their chosen sport.

The Sports Scholarship Scheme is very kindly supported by Santander, and is set up to support elite athletes throughout their time at university, whether they compete at international level or at regional and county level.

This invaluable support from Santander allows us to assist students in trying to balance the demands of academic study with high level participation in sport, to a level that may otherwise have not been possible.

We would like to express our deepest thanks to Santander for their continued support, without which we would be unable to support the Scholarship Scheme.

Awards are distributed on the strength of applications, and comprise some or all of the following:

  • £500 - £2,500 financial award
  • Free use of selected facility
  • Free Health Suite and Heavy Weights gym memberships
  • Free Studio and Fitness Classes
  • Discounted sports therapy services
  • Access to Talented Athlete Lifestyle Support with an accredited mentor.

Talented Athlete Scheme (TASS)

Oxford Brookes University also supports TASS (Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme), a government-funded programme that represents a unique partnership between sport and higher/further education. The partnership, between national governing bodies of sport and educational institutions, focuses on maintaining a balance between academic life and training as a performance athlete.


Applicants must:

  • Satisfy the normal entry requirements of Oxford Brookes University and have been offered a place on a degree programme at the University
  • Demonstrate excellence in their chosen sport
  • Be committed to representing Oxford Brookes University in BUCS competitions
  • Be willing to submit an annual report on their progress and performances.
  • Scholarships will only be made available within sports that are recognised as such by Sport England.

How to apply

Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis and can be renewed each academic year subject to satisfactory sporting achievements, academic progress and general conduct. The scholar will be assessed at the end of each year and will need to reapply for an award.

All new applications must be submitted by 31 July and re-applications (renewals) by 1 July for a scholarship to start in September of the same year.
