Dual Career Athletes

Team Surrey is delighted to introduce our Dual Career Athletes for the 2021/22 academic year.

The Dual Career Programme is a support service and financial package available to University of Surrey students who are pursuing a sporting career alongside their studies. The programme focuses on balancing success across all athletic and academic commitments, whilst continuously supporting holistic wellbeing.
