Support for elite student athletes

We support our elite student athletes to combine their sporting goals with their education, career and other life aspirations. We encourage athletes to succeed both on and off the sporting stage.

We can offer you support if you're:

  • An AUT Significant Student Scholarship student

  • A Prime Minister’s Scholarship recipient
  • An NZAS-carded athlete
  • A general student athlete who competes at a high level for your region or country.

How we support elite athletes

You'll be teamed up with an athlete support advisor who will offer you support with:

  • Career planning and development
  • Arranging time off from studies for sporting commitments
  • Setting goals for study, sport and life balance
  • Employment (information and tips)
  • Finding and using other AUT services – particularly student support services
  • Referral to external agencies
  • Time management and educational guidance
