“Buckinghamshire New University is delighted to be working in partnership with UCFB. The opportunity to study for a degree in the football and sports industry in two state-of-the-art campuses, both of which have iconic stadiums at their heart, offers students a truly unique learning experience. Our vision is to strive to be a leading creative and professional influence and we feel that this partnership will benefit students and these wider industries.

“There is nothing quite like this being offered in UK higher education, so students will benefit from access to a range of organisations and individuals operating at the highest levels of football and sport. We have been impressed with the innovative and dynamic approach shown by UCFB and their vision for running traditional academic programmes within a real life setting, which should serve to enhance graduates’ employment prospects within these exciting global industries.”
