Top-class sport

With the project "Partner university of top-class sport", University Sport Bochum promotes those athletes from predominantly Olympic sports who belong to a federal squad in their sport. Student squad athletes receive additional benefits and special support measures which help to reconcile studies and top-class sport.

Since 2003, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum has been a "Partner university of top-class sports". This means that the RUB, together with its cooperation partners, has committed itself to offering various support services for studying athletes in order to make the dual career of top-class sport and studies possible.

Partner university of top-class sports

The University Sports Department is responsible for the implementation of the support services and assumes the coordination function within the RUB. The following sponsorship services are available to studying top sportsmen and women on request:

  • Granting of vacation semesters related to top-level sport
  • Making study planning more flexible
  • Flexibilisation of attendance times
  • Individually coordinated submission and examination dates
  • Individual planning of internships and excursions
  • Free use of university sports facilities such as the Unifit fitness studio
  • Provision of dormitory places
  • Possibility of applying for a scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium)

Universiade and World University Championships (WUC)

World University Championships (WUC) and Universiades are top international sporting events. Every year, the International University Sports Federation (FISU) alternately organizes World University Championships or Universiades.

The nomination criteria for participation are determined by the German University Sports Association (adh) in cooperation with the respective national professional association. Student top athletes can gain international competition experience at these events and are thus prepared for future participation in European and World Championships and Olympic Games.
