Dual Career is a term used to describe student-athletes who are balancing sporting competition and training with full time university study.
FISU aims to inspire students to perform at their best both on the field of play as well as in their academic pursuits. To do this, FISU is dedicated to enhancing the dual career student-athlete via undertaking and supporting dual career research, reporting on data from student-athlete surveys and in providing resources and tools for not only student-athletes, but also for National University Sport Federations and universities.
Student-Athlete Survey Data
Since the World University Games in Taipei (2017), FISU has undertaken surveys of student-athletes to gauge their feedback on their own dual career.
