Silverstone BTS Tour - Over 100 Students Visit the home of British Motor Racing

These visits combine venue tours, guest speakers, industry panels, and networking sessions, providing students with exposure to a variety of sports. This experience allows them to explore potential career pathways within these sports and venues.

As UCFB’s alumni network continues to grow, many sessions are conducted by our graduates who now work at these prestigious locations. This adds an additional layer of relevance and inspiration for current students.

Previous trips have included visits to:

  • Silverstone Racetrack
  • Wimbledon Tennis Centre
  • Uttoxeter Racecourse
  • Lord’s Cricket Ground
  • Twickenham Stadium
  • Wigan Athletic Football Club
  • National Football Museum

These visits are beneficial to students for numerous reasons, both in the short and long term. The events allow students to explore areas of the sports industry they may not have previously considered as a career option, and they can network with successful industry figures working in those environments. Many of the industry events also feature sessions from careers and HR departments, discussing placements graduate roles and training schemes.
