The BA (Hons) Football Coaching (Distance (with attendance)) degree qualification is designed for those who wish to further their knowledge and understanding of working in football coaching settings. In addition to providing the opportunity to develop coaching practice, the programme provides opportunities to engage in a range of underpinning areas such as player scouting and recruitment, psychological and sociological considerations, nutrition and conditioning, talent development, technical and tactical awareness, reflective practice and performance analysis. It is ideal for current professionals working within the football industry who prefer a more flexible mode of delivery instead of a purely campus based programme. By having the opportunity to learn from the comfort of their own home, programme participants will be able to gain a further qualification to enhance their career prospects in a format that offers flexible hours and the chance to dictate their own work-life balance to fit around other commitments. This programme is a distance with attendance degree, meaning the majority of your studies will take place online through UCFB’s dedicated Online Hub. However, there will be the opportunity to learn on-campus at either UCFB Wembley, London or UCFB Etihad Campus, Manchester, for two weeks of each academic year.
