Course summary

Overview As Football in the UK continues to grow at a rapid rate, there is an increasing demand for more football specific qualified employees. More and more Football clubs are creating Trusts and Foundations which require skilled individuals who are not only able to coach Football, but to apply for funding bids, work with people from a range of backgrounds, abilities and demographics, and have a wider understanding of how Football development can positively impact other key agendas such as health, education, employment and anti-social behaviour. This BA Football Development & Coaching (Top Up) programme aims to further develop your underpinning knowledge and concepts learnt within the FdA Football Development & Coaching programme, a joint degree with Watford Football Club, to enable successful students to top up to a degree level qualification. We also welcome applicants from other institutions who have completed similar FdA-based qualifications.


Modules Advanced Football Development (15 credits) Football Coaching Science (30 credits) Work Based Practice (30 credits) Dissertation (30 credits)
