There are many crucial factors beyond choosing an institution and a degree programme to consider before a student commences their higher education journey.

Open days+

Open days are one of the most useful tools that you and your child have in deciding what programmes and institutions are best suited for them. At UCFB, our open days are an ideal opportunity for you and your child to meet with key personnel from our academic and admissions teams, as well as view our state-of-the-art campuses.

For more information you can visit our Open Days webpage.

Student finance+

We understand that students and parents may have concerns about student finance and the cost of education. However, there are multiple options available to students and it is important to remember most UK students do not have to pay for their tuition fees upfront.

For more information please visit our Student Finance web page.


We know that as a parent you will want to know that your son or daughter is living somewhere safe.

UCFB has partnered with two excellent accommodation providers in London and Manchester to ensure students have access to comfortable and secure halls of residence close to both campuses.

For more information you can visit our Accommodation web page.

Student support+

UCFB provides students with the support and facilities they need to make a smooth transition into higher education. Your child will have access to our pastoral care and personal development programme, allowing us to understand their individual personal and academic needs.

For more information please visit our Student Support web page.

Safety and security+

Your child’s safety and security is of paramount importance to UCFB. Both of our stadium campuses, and their various satellite locations, require photo ID to gain access, and our accommodation partners both in Manchester and London offer secure accommodation with 24-hour security and CCTV. Also, both campuses have dedicated student support services with qualified personnel on hand to help students with any issues they may be experiencing.
