Elite Athlete Status

UQ is endorsed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) as an Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) which means that UQ supports the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Guiding Principles for Implementation of the National Network of Elite Athlete Friendly Universities.

If you’re a UQ student who falls outside the standard definition of elite athlete as set out in section 2 of the Policy, you may apply in writing for consideration to the Academic Registrar, together with supporting documentation to studentadmin@uq.edu.au. Supporting documentation is to be
in the form of letters by:

  • Sporting authorities
  • Coaches or managers
  • Membership to sporting institutions
  • Evidence of training/sporting commitments for the relevant semester

Have a look at the Elite Athlete Policy and Applying for Elite Athlete Consideration Guide before you apply.
