Elite Athletes

Our Elite Athlete Programme enables gifted sportsmen and women to balance training and competition with their academic courses. The new centre will continue to give our elite athletes complimentary annual membership allowing the next generation of sporting heroes to train using first-rate facilities, compete and represent Strathclyde at the highest level.

Sport (recreational & competitive)

The popular and successful Strathclyde Sports Union, which will celebrate its centenary year in 2020, gives students access to over 50 different sports clubs and the opportunity to participate at all levels, from beginners to competitive athletes with 37 sports competing at Scottish and UK level. Participation in sport remains an important part of the student experience, developing transferable skills that become invaluable in the workplace, including leadership and teamwork.

The new facility will allow more clubs to train and compete within the University and the Sports Union has been integral to the design and strategic vision of the facility to ensure access and benefits for clubs will be maximised.

Excellent learning experiences

The new centre will include flexible and practical teaching spaces. Students studying on sports courses such as Sport & Physical Activity, Sports Engineering and Secondary Physical Education will be able to make full use of these facilities, gaining the best possible learning experience.

New research possibilities

Using the new space and infrastructure in the Sport, Health & Wellbeing Centre, new research will be undertaken in the development and implementation of interventions that encourage people to do more physical activity. Find out more about our physical activity for health research.
