Performance Sport at The University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh is among the country’s leading sporting universities.


We have helped countless students and graduates achieve their sporting ambitions, including the likes of six-time cycling Olympic Champion Sir Chris Hoy, Olympic gold medallist rower Katherine Grainger, World Champion Orienteer Yvette Baker and Scottish international football legend Julie Fleeting.

Sport & Exercise and Edinburgh University Sports Union (EUSU) jointly run Performance Sport support programmes for exceptionally talented student athletes. Both the Individual Performance Programme (IPP) and the Team Performance Programme (TPP) offer essential support for student athletes who are committed to succeeding on the international stage.
