As a member of the Australian Institute of Sport’s (AIS) Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) program, Western Sydney University is committed to supporting your endeavors to combine study and elite sport and will do everything it can to assist you in working towards and achieving your sporting and academic goals.

The Scheme consists of 2 tiers, the Elite Athlete and Performers Program and the Emerging Athletes Program.

The Elite Athlete and Performers Program is open to eligible students who are competing in Australian Sports Commission recognised sports at a national or international representative level. Officials and coaches who are also involved in these elite levels within their sport may also be eligible for this program. Student Athletes in this program have access to the full range of benefits that the Western Sydney University Elite Athlete and Performers Scheme has to offer, including access to grants, academic support, University sport apparel and fitness centre facilities and programs.

The Emerging Athletes Program is open to eligible students who are competing in state based premier leagues or junior development programs within their sport. This level is open to all sports and all applications will be individually assessed. Student Athletes in this program have access to all of the benefits the Western Sydney University Elite Athlete and Performers Scheme has to offer excluding grants and apparel. The main aim of this program is to help you develop and progress to a point where you can be elevated to the Elite Athlete status and this can be accomplished through our excellent strength and conditioning coaches, personalised fitness programs and academic assistance to help with your time management and give you the best possible chance to succeed and develop both in the classroom and out in your sporting arena.

This form also has a built in section to capture a short Biography of each of our Elite Athletes in order to showcase the amazing and diverse range of Athletes and Performers we have at our University.
