In partnership with the EFL and the University of South Wales, Burton Albion Community Trust provide a range of degrees which enable learners to gain their qualifications in a professional sporting environment.

Starting every September, we provide a number of opportunities to gain a full degree qualification across three years, specialising in a number of sports-related subjects.

These include:

  • Community Football Coaching and Administration (BSc)
  • Sports Coaching and Development (BSc)
  • Sports Business and Management (BA)

The courses are suitable for students of all ages (18+).

You’ll gain a vast array of experiences within Burton Albion Community Trust’s community setting alongside gaining your UEFA C Coaching qualification in a work-based placement.

Lectures will be delivered at the Burton Albion Community Football Centre and cover topics including: sports science, physical education and school sport, strategic sports development and football in society

Students will also visit the University of South Wales in Cardiff biannually.

You will gain the unrivalled experience of learning and developing in a wider football club and sports setting with the opportunity to further your experience with part time volunteering or paid roles within the Trust, with dedicated club mentors supporting you through your academic journey.

University fees apply and Student Finance is available to all full-time learners. Learners should apply directly through UCAS, but our Education team are on hand to support the process and welcome potential students to get in touch before applying.
