The University of Ulster Talented Athlete Entry Scheme is designed to assist talented young sports performers in gaining access to a quality education at the University of Ulster whilst attaining success at the highest levels within their chosen sport.
The Scheme recognises the sacrifice in time, effort and crucially – in examination performance – which may result from taking part in sport at the highest level. Under the Talented Athlete Entry Scheme, the University of Ulster allows a reduction in the points required for entry to full-time undergraduate courses. For the academic year 2014-15 successful applicants to the Talented Athlete Entry Scheme will be offered a reduction in entrance requirements of 40 UCAS Tariff Points or the equivalent in other accepted entrance qualifications.
