Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)
- Swansea University is proud to be leading the way with supporting talented athletes in education in Wales, having been the first Welsh university to be accredited by the new Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) initiative.
- We have been awarded the TASS Dual Career Accreditation, which recognises the commitment shown to supporting student athletes to excel in both academia and sport while studying at Swansea.
- The Dual Career Accreditation represents a unique partnership between support services and academic staff from across the University, and shows our commitment to ensuring a dual career pathway is 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.

- Our sporting scholarship programme allows us to support talented athletes to fulfil their potential and reach their sporting goals, while studying at University.
- There are different levels of scholarships available depending upon level of sporting achievement.
