Our Mission

GLEAS stands for globalizing education and sports and that's exactly what TeamGLEAS intends to do. We believe in challenging yourself and exploring new cultures, and what better way to do that than by fulfilling your passions and earning your degree at the same time? We're passionate about sports, education, and what some might call a bit obsessed with traveling the world. Once we learned that others share these interests, we set out to create opportunities that tick all these boxes, and we're psyched to share them with you.

  • Finding and working with TeamGLEAS has had one of the biggest impacts on my life. If I hadn't found the TeamGLEAS website online while considering a future grad assistantship, I would've never even known that I could have continued playing while both getting my MSc AND living abroad. Not only did Lindsey help me through the entire process but she was always available for me to discuss Universities and, ultimately, help me choose the right one for me. I never would have guessed that making my TG profile would've had the impact it did on my life. I can't thank TeamGLEAS enough for allowing me the absolute opportunity of a lifetime.

  • I had no idea the option to go overseas to play and get a degree was a possibility and had never heard of such a thing until my coaches mentioned TeamGLEAS specifically. Once I signed up on the website, I heard from Lindsey the next day. Lindsey informed me of the kind of University that Nottingham is, and I felt like it would fit my academic pursuits, which is why I ended up choosing Nottingham. TeamGLEAS was there to answer every question from the time of deciding upon my university until I've even been back in the US. The biggest help they offered was during the VISA process. TG laid the requirements out much more simply than what I could have deciphered on my own. I couldn't imagine not having TeamGLEAS’s support throughout this process.

  • When I first came across the advertisement for TeamGLEAS, I thought it was too good to be true. How was it possible that I could continue to play the sport I love and pursue a masters degree, while also living in England? I signed up, spoke with Lindsey, and there was an automatic connection. From the very beginning, Lindsey made me feel like family. I felt like I could trust her, and she allowed me to ask the thousands of questions I had at anytime of the day. TG helped me through the entire process of applying to Leeds Beckett University, contacting the basketball coaches, and applying for my student visa. TeamGLEAS allowed me to dream again, and pursue things that I never thought were possible. Without TG, there is no way I would have known about this amazing opportunity. This company allowed me to have one of the best years of my life, and for that, I am forever thankful.

  • I would have never been aware of the opportunities abroad if it were not for TeamGLEAS. After I expressed my desire to continue athletics, TG gave me all of the information I needed to choose an institution and apply to the one of my choice. They talked to me about each school, and after getting a glimpse of the atmosphere (campus, city, culture, etc.), I was able to confidently decide which university was the best fit for me. TG was there to guide me every step of the way, and I am thankful for the program.

  • Before hearing about TeamGLEAS, I had no idea that schools in England were interested in attracting US student athletes. It was only with the help of TG that I was able to learn about the amazing opportunity to play my sport and earn a degree at the University of Nottingham. Additionally, TG allowed me to speak with other athletes who had gone over to England for similar opportunities. Knowing that TG had helped other athletes through the daunting task of learning all about the funding options, potential expenses and Visa process made it much easier for me to make the decision to go ahead with my move to England. Lastly, since completing my degree, Lindsey has put me in touch with multiple US student-athletes considering this experience. Each time I have relayed to them the amazing experience I had, and encouraged them to trust that they will be in good hands with TG.

  • TeamGLEAS gave me the wings I needed to fly. Not only that, but it provided an excellent opportunity for me to explore multiple universities. When I graduated from the University of New Mexico, I was uncertain where my future would lead me. Thanks to a friend who introduced me to TeamGLEAS, I signed up and was able to explore the multiple pathways overseas. I wanted to go to an acclaimed university, and TG allowed me to learn more about the universities that offered the masters programs I was interested in. Thanks to TeamGLEAS, I got to follow my dream and explore new cultures while also receiving a world-class education.

  • Deciding to play sports and enroll in England has been one of the best decisions I've made, and that has led to some of the most fulfilling experiences I could have ever imagined. Not only did TeamGLEAS connect me with an amazing opportunity at a great school, but I can credit TeamGLEAS for connecting me with an amazing group of people that I have met through also being involved with the TeamGLEAS program that I will be able to consider lifelong friends. I will forever be grateful for Lindsey Gleason and the TeamGLEAS program for putting this opportunity on the table for me.
