Study Abroad Sport

St Mary’s offer sport for students at all levels, from social sport through to elite athlete support.

Study Abroad students have a unique opportunity to be a part of one of the UK’s leading sports universities and to utilise our clinicians and extensive facilities.

Sport St Mary's coordinates an extensive range of facilities and programmes at one of London’s top-performing sports institutions. We provide opportunities to suit every level of skill and interest, including gym memberships, personal training, fitness classes, sports clubs, sports rehabilitation and training for elite athletes.  

The world-class facilities on the main campus and at Teddington Lock (one mile away) have functioned as Olympic pre-Games training camps; athletes from 14 countries for the World Athletics Championships 2017 trained at St Mary’s and we were a Team Base during the Rugby World Cup 2015.
