Talented Athlete Programme

The University of Hull Talented Athlete Programme (TAP) supports elite athletes as they combine academic and sporting excellence during their time at University. Athletes are provided with a tailored package of core services such as; strength & conditioning, rehab and sport experience support.

Here at the University of Hull we are committed to ensuring our elite student athletes are able to compete at the highest level, whilst studying for a world-class degree.

Each year we award a number of elite sports scholarship packages to selected high performing athletes, who demonstrate aspirations to progress and achieve high levels of success within their chosen sport.


Our Talented Athlete programme recognises the individuality of each athlete, and that needs differ from sport to sport. Our programme is sympathetic to this, providing a unique approach that tailors our scholarships to the needs of each individual athlete.

  • A tailored financial offer
