The University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) offer dedicated undergraduate degree courses in the operational and business areas of the football and sports industries. Located at the world famous Wembley football stadium, UCFB are responding to football and sport’s global status as a multi-billion pound industry which requires specific administrative, management and operational skills and ability.

UCFB offers degrees, best-in-class industry guest speakers and extensive work experience as part of its approach to higher education and, close ties to organisations such as the PFA, English Premier League, BBC, ITV and Sky Sports, provide a unique and exclusive undergraduate experience for students.

Providing three times the contact time of traditional universities, UCFB provide two curricula; the traditional academic curriculum which involves traditional exams and coursework, and a Complimentary Curriculum – a three year journey of professional and personal development. This provides access to opportunities. Networking opportunities accompany the learning program, which in turn can lead to further opportunities in the future.

Within the UCFB campus, UCFB have facilities that reflect the excellence of the stadium, with lecture theatres, seminar rooms, library and media suites, overlooking the field of play. Key Wembley staff form part of the Executive Speaker programme, providing students with an invaluable insight into not only the operations but also to enable them to network and promote themselves for future employment opportunities.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
