Kick start your career in sports with UCFB
Kick off your career in sport
The global sports industry is worth billions of pounds. With increased TV revenues, marketing opportunities and ever-growing fan bases, never has there been more job opportunities in this exciting sector.
UCFB, a world-first in sports education, trains and educates individuals for these roles. Taught in our world-class and unique campuses with Wembley Stadium, London, and the Etihad Stadium and Campus, Manchester at their heart, students have an opportunity to leave us to go onto first class employment within an industry they have a passion for.
We’re proud to say 92 percent of UCFB graduates are in full time employment, and almost two thirds of those work in the football and sport industries with bodies such as The Football Association, Manchester United, Stoke City, Opta and EDP Soccer in New Jersey.
From day one, UCFB’s unique approach equips students for the rigours but also the exciting and life changing experiences a career in this fast paced world can offer.
As well as learning from our band of experienced, industry based academics, students have the opportunity to apply for truly amazing work experience placements in the UK and abroad. Previous students have worked at football clubs in Brazil, the UEFA Champions League final and England international games at Wembley.
And thanks to our Employment & Enrichment programme, students get the weekly opportunity to hear from industry professionals, ask them questions and gain key contacts for their future careers. Speakers in recent months have included BBC presenter Gabby Logan, England manager Gareth Southgate, Liverpool legend turned Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher and former FA Communications Director Adrian Bevington.
As well as partnerships with the likes of The FA and League Managers Association, UCFB has linked up with the Real Madrid Graduate School – Universidad Europea, the education arm of the 11 times European champions. The ground breaking partnership sees UCFB postgraduate students spend part of their year in the Spanish capital to further enhance their educational experience in a foreign market.
The expansion of football and sport means new jobs are being created on a daily basis. From marketing executives at top football clubs to coaches at county associations, and from psychologists at sporting institutions to event organisers at capacity stadiums the opportunities are endless.Sign-up or log in to apply
