Elite Athlete Protocol


Elite Athlete Protocol

Elite athletes are those students who receive support under the Elite Athlete Programme at Queen’s or hold a scholarship for one of the Queen’s Sports Academies or a Sports Bursary.

Queen’s University recognises that combining high level sport and higher education can be difficult. The University is fully supportive of elite athletes who manage themselves well and are proactive in organising their sport and their studies.

The University has therefore developed the following guidelines for academic flexibility to allow those students to combine their sporting responsibilities with their academic requirements.
