UCFB Profile

Welcome to UCFB we are proud to be a World First in Higher Education, dedicated to the delivery of undergraduate degree courses in the operational and business facets of the football and sports industries, which responds to their status as global multi-billion pound market sectors that require specific administrative, management and operational skills and capabilities.

UCFB is located in two state-of-the-art and inspirational locations. UCFB Wembley is located within the iconic Wembley Stadium, spiritual home of English football and sports. Our second campus is located at Burnley Football Club. Established in 1882, Turf Moor stadium maintains its importance in the global football world as one of the few founding members of the football industry in 1888. The UCFB teaching facilities overlook the famous Wembley and Turf Moor stadia which are the ‘chemistry labs’ for our students, allowing them to work within the machinery of the industry. During their time at UCFB, students have the opportunity to apply for paid and voluntary placements within the Wembley or Turf Moor stadia and their corporate partners, engaging with staff and customers, and gaining insight into the operations behind matches and events.

There are three key ingredients for a successful career within any industry, not least sport. These are namely a degree, good references/network of business contacts and a proven track record of work experience. At UCFB therefore we offer degrees, lecture series, workshops and executive speakers as part of our inimitable approach to Higher Education. Our active involvement in the football and sports industry provides a unique and exclusive undergraduate experience for our students.

Not only do students enjoy an inspiring and state of the art environment to learn in, but they are also given the opportunity to apply for work experience placements, get involved in a wide range of volunteering opportunities and further enhance their studies through our Complementary Curriculum™, which includes Modern Foreign Languages, coaching qualifications and leadership and management courses.
