Pentathletes have again been invited to apply for a scholarship to study sports management at the World Academy of Sport (WAoS).

One successful applicant will be awarded a 100% scholarship to undertake the Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) in International Sports Management. Up to 10 others can secure a 25% scholarship to cover £974 of the £3,896 course fee.

Ideal candidates for the scholarship will be elite pentathletes who are still active or beginning their transition into a post-athletic career. All applicants should have an undergraduate degree or at least five years of relevant management experience.

Apart from being able to study for the PGCert without paying course fees, the athlete who secures the 100% scholarship will also be offered a six-month internship with UIPM.

The other main eligibility criteria applies to non-native English speakers, who must have the equivalent of a 6.5 IELTS language certificate or a written piece that confirms. They must also have access to a computer with an internet connection.

The course is run in conjunction with the University of London and the core modules address the key areas of Strategy, Leadership, Governance and Financial Management, with two further elective modules.

The offer is part of a Memorandum of Understanding between UIPM and the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) initiated in 2020.

The Athletes’ Opportunities section of UIPM’s new Athletes Centred Programme (ACP) will provide registered athletes with a list of opportunities from UIPM and partners including international Olympic and sports organisations. This list is updated weekly and pentathletes can click here to register for the ACP.

All scholarship applications will be evaluated by WAoS, the University of London and UIPM. For any questions please contact the UIPM Projects team.
