Partner university of elite sport

Partner university of elite sport

Achieving top sporting performances is very time-consuming, exhausting and at the same time something admirable! To also study in addition to top-level sport is a masterly achievement that needs support.

Since 2006, the Rhineland-Palatinate University of Technology Kaiserslautern-Landau has been part of the project "Partner University of Top Sports" with the aim of supporting top athletes from the region. The student athletes are to be supported in mastering the double burden of elite sport and sport and helped through concrete measures.

UNISPORT serves as a central contact and advisor for challenges in everyday student life. In individual cases, measures and support options are to be offered to ensure the compatibility of studies and elite sport.

Who is actually a top athlete? Do you need a squad status? If you are interested, you can discuss these and other questions directly with us. Please contact Nina Schmall or the competition team.

RPTU's services for top athletes include
  • Provision of personal mentors to assist with individual study guidance and in cases of conflict.
  • Flexibilisation of study planning on the basis of sports subject planning over the entire duration of studies
  • Offer part-time study
  • Use of the university sports facilities and equipment

You can find more information, such as further services of the project, contractual provisions, etc. on the page of the general German university sports association
