The course looks to support the continuing professional development of football coaches and those working in football or a closely related field.
More than ever football is driven by statistics and analysis. From a players’ fitness to their in-game attributes, numbers play a huge part in the modern game. This programme will take an in-depth look at the numbers that make the game tick, alongside theoretical and practical coaching disciplines.
The Football Coaching and Analysis course offered by UCFB x GIS will enable students to develop a systematic and in-depth understanding of knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights for the advanced study of football coaching and analysis.
Students will utilise their advanced knowledge and understanding of football coaching to help them deal with complex issues systematically and creatively, problems, and communicate their conclusions clearly.
GIS global study hubs
Students enrolled on the degree programme have access to the GIS global study hubs which are based at New York’s Red Bull Arena, Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Toronto FC’s BMO Field and the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Each venue will play host to week-long GIS Global Summits, enabling students and graduates to enhance their knowledge and expertise of the international sports industry.
Career prospects include highly sought-after careers within a professional and semi-professional football team such as a coaching, match and performance analyst or operations manager at multidisciplinary teams.
This ties in with students’ career development, ultimately leading to them finding the right place within the football and sports business. For those who wish to extend their studies at the end of their degree, opportunities to study at Masters level will be encouraged.
82% of Master’s graduates are in employment within six months, with two-thirds of those working in sport.
