We offer the opportunity for young people to have the experience of a lifetime spending a year studying in an American university where they will get the chance to develop skills in their particular sport while continuing their higher education, studying English and making friends from different countries and cultures, making it an even more enriching experience.

- Advice during the whole process
- Help with the enrolment process and visa applications

Why the United States?
Sending your son or daughter to the United States is the best investment in their future you can make and there are many reasons why the US is an excellent choice as a destination for university study, here are a few:
- The United States is a country which offers more opportunities to sports-oriented students who want to continue their higher education without giving up the chance to practise their favourite sport.
- The standard of sport in Europe, for example in tennis and above all football is very high, which offers a great boost to the chances of being awarded a sports scholarship.
- Students can perfect their English, obtaining a skill which could be vital to their future.
- Thanks to its prestige at academic level, studying in the US opens doors for graduates in the global employment market.
- It is a unique opportunity for the young person to develop and mature as a person, going abroad, leaving their comfort zone, dealing with language barriers and getting to know people from different countries and cultures. It is an experience which encourages an extraordinary personal and cultural growth.
Why seek professional help instead of applying to a university yourself?
It’s not enough just to have great academic and sporting abilities if you want to identify the best opportunities. However talented the young person you won’t find the best universities if you don’t know where they are. As well as this, obtaining a sport scholarship involves a long and complex process which requires considerable time and knowledge about the various stages you have to go through.
Here are some of the reasons why you should seek the help of professionals if you want to apply for a sports scholarship from the US.
Through an organisation which is set up to manage this process you can ensure your application will be more visible. For the universities it is more straightforward to review the curriculums sent to them by professional agencies because they know that these profiles will meet their criteria.
It’s a complex process with several stages to complete within established timeframes. The risk of not being fully knowledgeable about the process combined with the hectic lives that most people lead make it possible we could forget one or other crucial steps we need to take to maximise the chances of success. A professional agency will oversee your application at every stage to ensure that all the requirements are fulfilled and deadlines are met.
The application process takes considerable time, especially if you don’t know all the options for your son/daughter and all the steps you have to take. By using the help of professionals you’ll save a lot of time and effort and all you will have to do is follow the instructions and advice that the team of advisers give you.
