Application Process

To be considered for the Elite Athlete Programme you should complete the below webform before September 16th 2019. Interviews will be held on 20th September 2019 and a compulsory induction will take place on 30th September 2019. 

If you miss the deadline there will be an opportunity to apply for the programme in January 2020. 

Students may apply to the programme at any point in the year, however only applications received before 16/09/19 are guaranteed to be considered.

All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application in writing. If successful at application stage, athletes will be invited to a short individual interview. All successful athletes will then be invited to attend The UCL Elite Programme Induction.

Please note it will be extremely unlikely we will support anyone that does not plan to represent UCL, however if you think you have extenuating circumstances please highlight your current level of commitments within your application so we can take them into consideration during selection.
