|Advantages linked to the Sports Student status||Tweeter|
Students can benefit from various advantages:
ULg Sports Students are supervised by a member of the academic staff within their Faculty. This individual supervisor, called an 'academic tutor' is available to help and facilitate within the Faculty, any relevant steps (in particular in relation to possibly staggering a course year, organising exam modalities, etc.) enabling ULg Sports Students to achieve their objectives.
The coordinator acts as a link between the ULg Sports Student and the University, providing administrative and logistical support throughout the year.
ULg Sports Students can stagger their academic year over two years; the programme is set by the student and his or her academic tutor, in agreement with the jury or the relevant Study Council. If necessary, the staggered plan may be reviewed up to the examination session (e.g. staggered plan could be cancelled if the student realises that he or she can sit all his or her exams; presentation of a few additional exams if this is possible, etc.).
Under no circumstances, however, may the year's programme amount to less than 15 credits (minimum of 30 credits in order to hold regular ULg student status).
Through the academic tutor, and depending on the organisational possibilities, ULg Sports Students may benefit from:
- arrangement of teaching activities (e.g. laboratory, seminars, date for submitting work);
- arrangement of timetable/calendar and modalities for sitting assessments and exams.
These specific modalities remain subject to an assessment by the relevant professors. Applications must be made by students within a reasonable timescale to the professor, or by the academic tutor (upon the student's request).
As far as possible, ULg Sports Students who wish to, may benefit from priority access and supervision from the 'Guidance' department (help with working methods, time-management, etc.). In addition, a seminar dedicated to the specific situation of students who are combining high-level sport with university studies is organised at the start of the academic year.
On the basis of a specific request, depending on availability and safety regulations, students may obtain advantages in terms of using sporting facilities, such as access to changing rooms, gym or other sporting equipment, etc.
ULg Sports Students may benefit, as far as possible, from priority access to CHU services for consultations motivated by an incident which is generally related to sporting activities.
A network of ULg Sports Students facilitates information sharing. Through the network, students can discuss their experiences.
Note: these advantages are not automatic, they are granted upon student request.
