This course is a product of an international collaboration of the following universities:

KU Leuven, founded in 1425, is one of the oldest Universities in the world, and ranks among the world’s top 100 Universities. It is a leading centre of international excellence in disability and Paralympic sport.

See our Research school here.

Charles University in Prague, founded in 1348, is the oldest University in Central Europe, and is consistently ranked first among the Universities of Central and Eastern Europe.

Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, founded in 1477, is one of the top research universities in Germany of national and international recognition. It is a founding partner of the groundbreaking Executive Master in European Sports Governance.

Swansea University, founded in 1920, is a rapidly growing, UK top 30, research-intensive University with world-leading sports science research and productive international partnerships. Swansea has pioneered globally the ethics of sports as an area of applied research and consultancy in elite sport.

The University of the Peloponnese is the most recently founded of Greek Universities, and draws on extensive links with the International Olympic Academy and the Olympic Movement. It hosts summer schools on Olympic Studies at its Ancient Olympia campus, adjacent to the archaeological site of the Ancient Olympic Games.

The University Pompeu Fabra is ranked as the 1st University in Spain, the 7th in Europe and 13th worldwide in the Times Higher Education (THE) top Universities under 50 years old. It is recognised as a “Campus of International Excellence”‌‌‌.
