Overview

Throughout the course you’ll be guided by an academic team with experience at all levels of the game. They’ve conducted major research reviews that have changed Premier and Football League regulations; won acclaim from UEFA for their football development work; and produced a number of published works on the subject.

The curriculum offers a rounded business education, with all learning contextualised to the football environment. Modules cover marketing, management, football development, sociology, organisational behaviour and strategic planning. These themes run throughout the three year course, helping you to develop your general business skills alongside knowledge that is specific to the management of football organisations.

In the final year of the course you’ll select an area of specialism. This will help you to better prepare for roles that match your personal ambitions, and will give you the chance to have an in-depth look at a side of the business you find most engaging.

Employability skills are embedded throughout the degree, ensuring that you graduate well prepared to apply for relevant roles. Work experience is a core component of the ‘Principles of Football Development’ unit, which will see you working on leadership projects within the local football community. There is also a range of work experience and volunteering opportunities available through our network of partner clubs.
