Sports Scholarships 



The aim of the Cardiff Met Sports 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-centred 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.

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

  • Membership to the University Sports Facilities.

  • Sports Psychology: This will be available on an individual basis from members of staff who are experienced in dealing with elite sportsmen and women.

  • Podiatry at the Wales Centre for Podiatric Studies at Cardiff Met.

Past Student Experience:

"I was a student at Cardiff Met's Cyncoed Campus for three years. I was inspired by the ethos of sporting excellence and University rugby was the springboard for my international career. I welcome this opportunity to wish the current and future Cardiff Met sports scholars every success in their sporting endeavours."
