Want to make Rugby part of your University Experience?

An opportunity open to current Y12 & 13 students interested in finding out more about combining their rugby development with Higher Education. 

Experience the day to day life as a Northumbria University student rugby player, whether in the Performance or Participation environment. 

If you have already received an offer from Northumbria University you will be invited to attend an NU Experience Day, which you could combine with this specialised session.

But whether you’re an offer holder or not, if you’re interested in having rugby as part of your University experience, get in touch to book your place! 

The day will give you an insight into the facilities Northumbria University has at its disposal, while having the opportunity to meet and work with our fantastic and highly experienced Rugby staff. Northumbria has an ever-developing rugby programme with a proven history of developing Rugby Players both on and off the field. Ensuring you develop as a player on the pitch but also enhance your CV through volunteer and personal development opportunities.

Many Northumbria rugby students have progressed into top-flight environments. Current internationals Mark Wilson & Joanna Brown came through the Northumbria Rugby Programme, England 7s international Will Muir only last year graduated with a 1stclass degree in Mechanical Engineering after starting his Northumbria journey in the participation programme.
