We allow the users to create their profile on the United Sports USA website. We hold no responsibility for the information that you provide.

You should have access to the internet, email and telephone. You must provide a valid email, telephone number and address, and notify the company if any of these contact details change.
By creating the profile and paying the assessment fee you are not guaranteed to be eligible for a scholarship. The assessment is design to assess your sporting ability, academic credentials and overall eligibility. The final decision will not be made until all of these elements of your application have been assessed.
All soccer applicants are required either participate in the UK assessment or provide full game video footage to a reasonable standard in order for our staff to assess your playing ability. £20 assessment fee is non refundable. The assessment fee covers the admin costs, event costs and media costs.
