Partner University of top-level-sports

Since 2003, the Ruhr-University Bochum is "Partner University of top-level sport." Thus, the Ruhr University, together with its partners committed to support student top sportsmen and athletes enabling them to challenge the dual career of top-level sport and study. In 1998, the results of a survey of studying track and field athletes of the German Athletics Federation (DLV) and the German University Sports Federation (adh) on the initiative of the adh lead to start a nationwide coordinated elite sport development project. The joint analysis revealed that a university education is possible simultaneously to the top sports and is desired by active athletes and demanded by a significant number, however, requires special conditions. Consequently, the adh developed with its partner organizations in 1999 a treaty so that young people who decide to study and to do professional sports, find flexible study conditions and are more secure.
