Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)

TASS is a unique government backed partnership between talented young athletes, educational institutes and National Governing bodies of sport.

The University of Bath supports more than 35 TASS athletes across over 15 sports.

At Bath we have a dedicated team of staff to provide a range of services to TASS athletes including physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, sports science, coaching, sport nutrition, sport psychology and lifestyle support.


For more information contact the Training and Development team, although interested athletes should contact their national governing body in the first instance about TASS nominations.

For more information on the sports and how to access funding visit their website, contact the National Office by email or call on 01912 437356.
