BMC and Leicester Tigers are offering the perfect environment for talented, ambitious players to gain an exceptional education alongside a rugby training programme.

Development Programme

Our Rugby development pathway for Level 2 and 3 students includes 6 – 8 hours of coaching from Leicester Tigers per week.

If the Tigers are impressed with your training and performances in games, there is the opportunity to progress into the AASE squad.

This course is open to all standards of Rugby ability (with no trial required) and the coaching will ensure that individual development takes place, with strength and conditioning and analysis sessions in the timetable.


AASE Programme

You will study a two-year Level course, whilst also participating in 10 hours of expert coaching from Leicester Tigers, including performance analysis, strength and conditioning and nutrition advice.

The Leicester Tigers AASE Programme is a limited offer for talented players who are looking to excel on and off the pitch. Places are given to those rugby players selected through the Tigers recruitment processes and trials.

You will play and represent BMC at the highest possible standard of college rugby in a competitive league and, through your bespoke rugby timetable, will have opportunities to gain additional qualifications through voluntary opportunities and placements at Leicester Tigers.

Previous graduates of the Leicester Tigers Rugby programme have gone on to professional playing contracts and to represent their countries on an international stage.
