The University of Münster as a partner university of top-level sports
Since February 25th, 2002, the University of Münster became the first partner university of top-level sports in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Currently, there are around 1.200 university students who are part of top-level sports squads who successfully study and practice at the same time. However, the schedules are tight, examination dates are fixed, there are many competitions and practices – and on the other hand the students need foundations for a later work life.
Knowing those difficult barriers, the University of Münster and its partners, for example the German Association for University Sports and the Olympic basis of Westphalia and other partners want to provide better study and practice opportunities for squad-athletes (A-, B- and C-squad athletes and other top-level athletes).
“Flexibility” is one of the most important key words; and top performance is most significant: however, nobody should expect “light” studies with less workload.
Balancing studies and top-level sports is not easy but possible!
