Support that matters
'The Elite Athlete program has been an enormous help for me. Full-time training doesn't leave room for much else so the help of the team in getting deferred exams when I'm travelling or early class allocation so uni can fit around my hectic schedule has been the biggest help. I'm not sure I'd be able to study without it!'
'The QUT Elite Athlete Program provides me with a financial support for sports travel and also funding to enable me to contest the Division 1 National University Championships. The staff are always willing to provide support and documentation to enable extensions and deferrals when my sports timetable clashes with competition or if my training loads get too heavy to manage both my academic study and sporting aspirations. It is through the Elite Athlete Program that I am able to prioritise sport without it impacting on my university and work life.'
'QUT has supported me throughout my sporting journey. I initially thought I'd be on my own after finishing high school, but that's not the case with QUT and its Elite Athlete Program. Early class allocations, subsidising travel costs and involving me in university sport are just some of the things that have helped immensely in my university journey so far. Without this support, it wouldn’t be feasible to keep up sport at an elite level.'
