Why study at UCFB?

“The football industry is a multi-billion pound global business and yet there is little provision in education and training in this rapidly expanding sector.

“UCFB provides best in class academic education in traditional degree subjects, which gives each student the skills, capabilities and knowledge to work within the football business and surrounding industries.”

Philip Wilson

Chief Executive, UCFB

UCFB knows the sports industry well. Senior, respected figures from the football business and wider sports industries are in our industry network, developing our curriculum and teaching in our lecture theatres.

All UCFB programmes are characterised by our Complementary Curriculum, which bridges the gap between education and business. Through our Executive Guest Speaker Series and programme of organised excursions, as a student at UCFB you will have the opportunity to engage with best-in-class industry and sector specialists, building your network and putting theory into context from day one.

In addition to our strong academics, leading figures in football business and sports academia, UCFB provides support for all extra-curricular aspects of your period of study, including accommodation, student services and pastoral care, activities and field trips around London and beyond.

Living in London

UCFB Wembley is just a 12 minute train ride from Central London, giving you access to one of the world’s most exciting and cosmopolitan cities. In addition to being Europe’s financial capital, London hosts many major sporting and cultural events and is home to more museums and galleries than any other city in the world. It’s easy to understand why so many students choose London as their study abroad destination.
