Improve the performance and success of your football team, whether you're a player or a coach, on our unique degree course. Study in a place and at a time that suits you.
Our unique degree course is specifically designed to fit around the working patterns of busy sports professionals. Whether you're involved in men's or women's football, it will give you skills and techniques for coaching success.
If you're a player at the moment, our course will give you the chance to learn a wide range of transferable, highly practical skills and prepare for a career in coaching in the future.
If you're already a coach, this qualification will build on your existing badges and coaching experience. It will reinforce the theories and concepts behind the practices you've developed so far, give breadth to your knowledge and coaching techniques, and further enhance your coaching style and career success.
We've developed our course with education professionals in the football community, including associations and clubs in the Premiership, Championship, leagues one and two, and England Women. Our specialist tutors work with elite clubs and they'll share their knowledge and expertise, helping you to achieve your aspirations. You'll learn in an innovative, supportive and challenging environment with other players and coaches.
Over the course of three years, we'll study areas such as football finance, youth coaching, sport development, sports science and sports psychology. And in your final year, you'll be able to carry out a research project in an area that's of particular interest to you.
Successful completion of this course will open the doors to a variety of career opportunities at the end of your playing career, whether you're staying in football or moving elsewhere in the sports world.
We'll assess you in a number of ways, including patchwork texts (smaller pieces of work, or 'patches' that are built up into a whole), presentations, portfolios and written assessments.
