The performance sport programme at the University of Warwick is divided into two strands; TWP Team Warwick Performance Programme and Sports Scholarship Programme. The video on the link above features some of our participants of the programme and demonstrates how the programme and the university support them in reaching their maximum potential on the sporting platform.
The main objectives of the programme are to support student athletes to reach their full potential by creating an environment of excellence for teams and individuals.
TWP – Team Warwick Performance Programme
A programme which is offered to selected teams via an application process. Teams must demonstrate a desire to succeed and commitment from all 1st team members to reach their full potential through hard work, determination and the support mechanisms which Warwick Sport can offer via this programme. Each year Warwick Sport receive over 20 applications from BUCS (British University College Sport) or ‘Olympic’ sport teams.
Sports Scholarship Programme
The Warwick Sport scholarship programme is available to talented students who are currently performing at the following levels: -

Warwick Sport would like to thank you for the financial support which you were able to provide this year. Competing at an elite level is always a costly affair and the students, as well as Warwick Sport, are always grateful for any support which they are able to receive to make their journey on the sporting platform less stressful, enabling them to focus their efforts on their training and their competition. The programme would certainly not be as extensive without this support, through donations over the years. We believe that it has had a massive positive impact and this is demonstrated in the achievements of the teams and individuals. Thank you.
