Sporting career and what's next?

A good education is an essential condition to be able to arrange  the life successfully after the sporting career. Nevertheless, the compatibility of studying and a top-class sport within the scope of a binary career planning is not always given on account of the basic conditions and the timing demands.

The TU Dortmund University is anxious to promote and enable a dual career according to the cooperation agreement with “Partnerhochschule des Spitzensports”/”partner university of the elite sport”.  There a different services for athletes, who are e.g in the German national or in a regional team (A,B or C cadre). 

The most important services are:

  • Support and consulting service for the flexibilization of the study
  • Free access to sports facilities for training purposes
  • Support for the arrangement of competitions/training camps with must-attend events at the university
  • We would be glad to advise you individually and support you within the scope of the cooperation agreement with “Partnerhochschule des Spitzensports”/”Partner University of the elite sport”
