NCAA D3 Graduate Student-Athletes Update

This weekend, the NCAA rejected a proposal to allow graduate students to participate in athletics at the institution of their choice.

Student-athletes with eligibility remaining are only permitted to compete for the college they received their undergraduate degree. For many students, this ruling will deny the opportunity to be educated at a different institution or experience life in another part of the USA.

This ruling does NOT impact student-athletes who wish to play & study in the United Kingdom however. For those NCAA D3 student-athletes who do wish to continue their studies in grad school, they can still compete in college athletics in the United Kingdom.

UNILINK Sports has partnered with a number of universities all over the UK, to offer the opportunity for student-athletes to study for a masters degree and continue competing at a high level. Email us at: to find out how.
