Myerscough is set out of town and is the ideal environment for student athletes to develop. With residential blocks a stones throw away from all of our facilities, including the canteen, the High Performance Centre, strength and conditioning suite and sports centre, students have an opportunity to live and train as a professional athlete. For more information, visit Myerscough College's official website.
The College offers a unique opportunity for students who wish to develop a comprehensive understanding of basketball and high performance sports to study a level 3 (A-Levels equivalent) BTEC in sports performance and excellence (Basketball Studies) with some gaining access to Basketball England's DiSE (Diploma in Sporting Excellence) programme.
Basketball Studies at Myerscough College will give students the opportunity to gain academic knowledge as well as be in a basketball environment like no other and will offer students the academic qualification to progress onto university.
The staff are totally dedicated to the players and programme. their help and guidance on and off the court is always available; they have been the biggest factor in my achievements and developments.

LIVING AT MYERSCOUGH
At Myerscough there is exceptional full-board and self-catering accommodation for more than 650 students, in 28 different Halls of Residence. There is a good mix of single and twin rooms with shared common room, kitchen and bathroom facilities, plus a range of self-catering en-suite accommodation. Myerscough prides itself on being a safe and friendly campus. Resident wardens are always on hand to assist with the well-being and safety of students, while CCTV cameras and a night-time security team provide additional reassurance. All our accommodation is non-smoking. The majority of accommodation also has access to either wireless or cabled networked internet access. The cost of this is included in your residential contract*. Residential fees for Higher Education (University) students range from £4,032 for a single en-suite room on a self catering basis to £5,809 for a single en-suite room with full-board catering – both on 36 week contracts. Residential fees for Further Education (College) students start from £4,255 for a twin room with shared bathroom and a five-day meal allowance.
This is to help towards living costs (accommodation, food, travel and course materials for example) whilst studying at College. You can receive up to £3,800 (dependent on household income) which is paid to you in 3 termly instalments. This is a non repayable grant. Myerscough Basketball Academy students typically use the maintenance grant to cover the cost of accommodation.
Grants are accessible to learners where the annual household income is less than £35,000, subject to an application being submitted to the College, which must include the relevant evidence as requested for an income assessment.

"Myerscough has an amazing set up with great and experienced coaches, who understand what it takes to get to the next level. I gained a lot of exposure, success, court time, and learned how to be a leader."
