UCFB welcomes students from all over the world of different nationalities.

The football and sports industry is truly global with star players on and off the pitch from many different countries. UCFB is determined to play its part in ensuring that the next generation of football and sports leaders reflect the diversity already there on the pitch. We are therefore keen to go beyond welcoming international students and encourage them to do much more. We provide an integrated international environment for all of our students.

Our team has in-depth experience of nurturing international student communities, so we know how important it is to provide constant support, monitoring and feedback. We deliver support on an individual basis to ensure any challenges from relocation are dealt with quickly and confidentially.

We expect our alumni will go on to become leading figures in all market sectors internationally. Friendships formed as students will lead to a network of informed professionals around the globe – our alumni family.

All of this is, of course, dependent on applicants securing permission to study in the UK. Given the international climate, this is a challenge which should not be underestimated. We therefore encourage prospective students to engage in dialogue with us at the earliest opportunity.
