Sport Scholarships

The aim of the Cardiff Met Sports Bursary & Scholarship Scheme is to assist students of exceptional sporting ability to develop their academic and sporting talents to their fullest potential. 

The scheme offers a learner-centered experience in which scholars receive guidance and support, enabling them to take greater control of their lifestyle to facilitate the co-development of their academic and sporting potential.  


​​There are two sport scholarships available:

  1. The University Undergraduate Sport Scholarship Award

This is an award for students that excel in sport.  Students can be studying in any of our five academic schools to apply for this award.  (Scholarship value can be up to £7,500).

  1. Student Union Sports Scholarship​

This scholarship is also open to all students regardless of what course they are studying at Cardiff Met, as long as they are competing or have the potential to compete at international level.  (Scholarship value can be up to £1,000).


Past Student Experience:

"I was a student at Cardiff Met's Cyncoed Campus for three years. I was inspired by the ethos of sporting excellence and University rugby was the springboard for my international career. I welcome this opportunity to wish the current and future Cardiff Met sports scholars every success in their sporting endeavours."
