Student Athletes

Are you amongst the best in one of our 6 Focus Sports?

Within our Focus Sports programme we provide an athlete-centred performance hub environment. Want to play at the very best level which university has to offer, then this is the pathway for you. 

Northumbria is ranked highly within BUCS in these sports and have a strong local and national profile so you know when you move on from Northumbria and mention that you went to Northumbria, teams will know how good you are and the dedication that goes into our Focus Sport programme. 

We offer a number of Sport Scholarships and Athlete Support Services (such as Physiotherapy & Strength and Conditioning Sessions). We strive to do the best for our athletes.
