College sports: the combination between sports and studies in the United States. You study and compete for the varsity sports team of your university. Student-athletes earn a respected university degree while they are playing their sport nearly every day.
In the US, nearly all universities have sports teams that compete with each other on a regional and national level. The universities in the US allow student-athletes to develop themselves on an academic and an athletic level, while keeping a good balance between sports and academics. In most cases, universities offer scholarships that lower the costs of studies in exchange for athletic performances.
In the United States, all schools are called ‘college’ or ‘university’. This does not mean that you are required to be able to study at a university level in Europe. For more information about the academics, check out the FAQ page on academic and admissions requirements.
