Performance rowing programme

University of St Andrews offers students a world-leading academic education alongside a holistic, athlete-centred performance rowing programme.

Led by Director of Rowing Alan Sinclair, we aim to deliver the very best support and a comprehensive programme of training and competition to enable our top student rowers to harness their full potential and achieve sporting and academic excellence whilst studying at St Andrews.

Our aim is to provide a programme that allows rowers of all abilities to be involved in the sport we all love, whilst pushing our athletes to reach new heights and become the best they can possibly be.

Scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance rowing programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

With world-class facilities, highly experienced coaches, and a comprehensive support programme, you’ll have access to a positive rowing environment, enabling you to flourish in both your academic and sporting endeavours.
