UCFB is a college of Bucks New University and this course is available to applicants from the UK, EU and EEA only.
The workforce within football and sport businesses, clubs and organisations is changing and the line drawn between coaching, management and business within the same organisation has blurred.
No longer can individuals in a sporting institution, regardless of their role, exist in isolation and ignore other parts of the business operations. This degree imparts the necessary leadership fundamentals required to inspire, organise and improve individuals.
This course is available with a Foundation Year. The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Each module is worth a specified number of credits (typically either 15 or 30 credits for undergraduate courses). Compulsory (or ‘core’) modules cover key subject knowledge, while ‘option’ modules enable you to develop your own interests. For a full-time course you must take modules worth a total of 120 credits at each level of the course. The number of option modules you can take depends on the number of compulsory modules at each level. You can find more information about how your course is structured via the Academic Advice pages.
Our teaching is informed by research and employer requirements, and modules change periodically to reflect developments in the subject area.

If an option module does not run, we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.
