We also partner with a group of national governing bodies of sport – all of whom have chosen the University as their primary training base – in supporting high-performance sport.

These include PentathlonGB, British Swimming, England Netball and the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association.

Athlete benefits

Our role in supporting full-time athletes is central to our approach to sport.

We strive to facilitate the critical factors that underpin achievement and to do this we have in place a specific programme of athlete benefits from which we encourage all full-time athletes to draw benefit.

These can include:

  • Gym and facility access
  • Access to a dedicated lifestyle support advisor from within the Team Bath Lifestyle Support Service
  • Opportunities to apply for the Dual Career Programme, supporting athletes who aspire to achieve in more than one field, including employment or education
  • Work experience
  • A car parking permit
