The KADA SLS Program for Student Athletes

The KADA SLS Program for Student Athletes

SLS logo

Students who are competing in sports at an elite level and studying at university at the same time are usually faced with many administrative and structural challenges when trying to combine these activities. The SLS (Studium Leistung Sport) program run by the KADA association provides support to student athletes and helps them reconcile the demands of competitive sports and successful academic studies. The SLS program helps student athletes custom-tailor their academic programs to balance out the additional time and effort required by elite athletics. It is by no means intended to water down academic programs for student athletes.

What kind of support is available?

Participating students receive academic coaching and support in organizing their studies. The support services are tailored to each athlete’s individual needs, subject to the capacities available at the university.

How can I participate in the KADA SLS program?

All degree program students who fulfill KADA’s athletic qualification criteria are eligible to participate in the SLS program. The admission process is handled exclusively by KADA. Once you have been admitted, you will be assigned an academic coach at WU.
