Why Choose UCFB
Football is a truly global sport worth billions of pounds. With increased TV revenues, marketing opportunities and ever-growing fan bases, never has there been more job opportunities in the industry.
UCFB, a world-fist in higher education, trains and educates individuals for these roles. Taught in our world-class and unique campuses in and around Wembley Stadium, London, and the Etihad Stadium and Campus, Manchester, students become graduates and move on to first class employment within an industry they have a passion for.
Students will learn while overlooking the turf of these two famous stadia, providing a truly inspirational setting to live and learn in.
We’re proud to say 93 percent of UCFB graduates are in full time employment, and 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 to higher education equips students for the rigours but also the exciting and life changing 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.
And thanks to our Complementary Curriculum and Executive Guest Speaker Series, 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, World Cup winner George Cohen, Liverpool legend turned Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher and former FA Communications Director Adrian Bevington.
