College Sport Survey

The annual College Sport Survey collects data to assess the progress colleges have made against national targets.

The data provides colleges with essential management information, including regional and national benchmarks, and helps identify priorities for Self-Assessment Reviews (SARs) and cross-college strategies. The survey also provides us with an advocacy tool to make the case for further investment into college sport.
