Past Sports Scholars

Past sports bursars

Many top athletes have benefitted from the University's Sports Scholarship scheme.

Since its introduction in 1983, the University has seen its scholars win gold at the Olympics, take Commonwealth titles and compete for their country in key international events.

Pictured to the left are two of our more recent sports scholars - Tim Brabants and David Florence - who won gold and silver respectively at the last Olympic Games in 2008.
