The Athlete Learning Gateway is an innovative new way for elite athletes to study while training and competing. The service is available for you to use at any time, wherever you are, free of charge. Our short courses feature academic lecture videos created by leading academics and professionals from the world of sport. They also include practical insights from top athletes, coaches and inspirational leaders.

The Athlete Learning Gateway also features short, interesting articles and videos we have found across the internet, to motivate, inspire or even challenge you in your sporting career and beyond. We hope you find them useful.
