Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)

Here at Swansea University, we are proud to be leading the way in supporting talented athletes in education in Wales. We were the first Welsh University to be accredited by the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) and have been awarded TASS Dual Career Accreditation, which recognises our commitment to supporting student athletes to excel in both academia and sport while studying at Swansea.

Dual Career Accreditation represents a unique partnership between support services and academic staff from across the University, and demonstrates our commitment to ensuring dual career pathways are available to student athletes.

We believe that by providing academic flexibility, as well as the correct environment and support, student athletes can thrive and fulfil both their sporting and educational potential.
