UCFB, a world first in sports education, provides university degrees in the football and sports industry. These are taught in our world-class campuses in London and Manchester, which have the iconic Wembley and Etihad stadiums at their heart.
We’re proud to say 92% of UCFB graduates are in full time employment, and nearly two thirds are working in sport with bodies such as The FA, Manchester United, Sale Sharks and EDP Soccer in New Jersey.
From day one, UCFB’s unique approach to higher education equips students for the rigours and exciting experiences a career in this fast paced world can offer.
We firmly believe there are three ingredients necessary for such a career: a degree, a network of contacts and a CV full of fantastic work placements. That’s why UCFB offers the whole package.
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.
UCFB proudly partners leading organisations in the industry including The FA, League Managers Association, The National League and The Rugby Football League.
The expansion of 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.
