Did you know many of athletes lack adequate level of education to find work?

Education helps you develop critical skills like decision-making, problem-solving, and logical thinking. Through education you increase your chances for better career opportunities and open up new doors for your future.

Dual Career

Both sports and education require common skills to allow you to meet your full potential. We will help you balance your program needs to ensure your transferable skills develop to benefit every area of your future career, including work ethic, self-reflection, leadership and much more!

Dual Career Benefits

Course Accreditation

The International Student Athlete Program’s educational programs all follow the internationally recognised European Qualifications Framework (EQF). Making national qualifications more readable around the world while encouraging lifelong learning!!

This way you can start your studies in one European country, and continue in another without having to “translate” your qualifications in order to do so. Also showing your future employers that all of your education is of the highest standard!!

The EQF system is set up in 8 levels, each one having its own intended learning outcomes. These are in turn divided into 3 parts:

  • Knowledge
  • Skills
  • Responsibility & Autonomy
