At the University Campus of Football Business (鶹Ƶ) we pride ourselves on providing students with a stimulating curriculum in a unique environment at our UK campuses, located in London and Manchester

We believe our world first approach to higher education gives our students the best possible chance of a successful career in the football and sports industry. What makes our education experience work so well is down to three key components: what we teach, where we teach and how we teach.

What we teach

Our degree programmes have been designed with these industries and their varied roles specifically in mind. Media, marketing, finance, psychology, coaching and event management, amongst others, are all sectors of these industries that are growing at a rate never seen before, with new roles being created on a daily basis.

Where we teach

Our students benefit from unique learning and sporting environments to live and learn in, with state-of-the-art facilities in inspirational campuses in London and Manchester. We like to call this an immersive education – by living and learning around stadium environments and bespoke campus learning facilities, students are preparing themselves to work in similar surroundings after they graduate, therefore easing the transition from full time education to full time work.

How we teach

At 鶹Ƶ we believe there are three necessary requirements for a career in the football and sports industry: a degree, industry contacts and work experience on your CV. Our three-tiered learning model provides all of this.

The first is learning from our leading team of academics, whose knowledge and experience of these businesses worldwide is vast. Here, students learn the theory through books, research and presentations before then hearing from our industry guest speakers on the intricacies of their profession.

This second layer allows our stellar guest speakers to bring the theory to life, providing first-hand context of these industries from the highest level. The calibre of our guest speakers, which previously has included international managers and players, as well as club chief executives and media personalities, means students are hearing from leading professionals in an intimate environment and gaining unparalleled insight.

Lastly, once our students have learnt the theory and how to apply it, they’re encouraged to go out in the industry and do it themselves. Our incredible Employability and Career Planning team provides students with numerous opportunities to apply for unique work experience roles in the UK and abroad. In the last six years, 鶹Ƶ has provided over 1,000 work placement opportunities at organisations including The Football Association, UEFA, Premier League and Football League clubs, as well as an array of sponsors, suppliers and events in the world of sport.

We believe our approach and this combination is the perfect recipe for a student to set themselves up for a long, successful and fulfilling career in these exciting, multi-billion-pound, global industries.
