Elite Athletes and Master studies
Uppsala University and the Swedish Sports Confederation has entered an agreement that Uppsala University should be a “elite athlete friendly university”. However this does not grant priority in admissions to Programmes and/or courses. If you are a student at the Department of Business Studies that practice sports at an elite level we offer you guidance and support in how to best handle the combination of studies and competing at the top level.
The sport must be included in one of the special sports federations that are organised by Swedish Sports Confederation (Riksidrottsförbundet). Individual athletes should compete on at least national championship level and/or in national teams to be defined as top-level athletes. Top-level team athletes should compete in the top two national leagues. The definition also applies to coaches for top-level teams and athletes, managers of national teams and federal coaches.
Admitted to a Master Programme at the Department of Business Studies
If you are admitted to one of our Master Programmes you are welcome to book an appointment where we sit down and look at the Programme structure as a whole as well as your current semester. It is important that you bring all training, tournament and travel schedules to this meeting.
