Swansea University – The Warpigs

image002The world class International Sports Village at Sketty Lane Swansea is host to the famous Swansea University  Rugby League side ‘The Warpigs’.

The South Wales Scorpions and The Warpigs have recently formed a Player Development Partnership with The Warpig players having direct access to the Scorpions player development pathways and the opportunity to earn a professional playing contract alongside academic studies.

Each year the leading University offers several undergraduate entrance scholarships for outstanding students in their sporting activity. Each scholarship is worth £1000 per annum and is renewable for three years.

In addition each scholar is assigned a Supervisor whose job it is (in consultation with the student’s head of image007department) to help devise a programme of work for the student, so that the best use is made of the scholarship.

In this way, the University aims to ensure that the student’s academic and scholarship work go forward hand in hand and that the scholar achieves distinction in both spheres.

Students whose applications for a scholarship are unsuccessful may apply, after enrolling with the University, for a Sporting Bursary. The bursaries are worth a maximum of £350 per year.
