  • 10 hour structured Football Programme
  • 5 Contact days per year in Loughborough
  • Tutor support both at Scarborough and Loughborough
  • Accommodation can be provided – enquire on application

The course allows flexibility. You can study for 1, 2 or 3 years. Year 1 you work towards a HNC (Higher National Certificate), Year 2 is a HND (Higher National Diploma and Year 3 you top up to a full degree. Each year your qualification is locked in and as long as you pass the units you get a qualification no matter how many years you study.

After initial enquiry, all applications are via UCAS and Government Student Finance. You will receive support with course fees as well as student maintenance loans for accommodation and living expenses if required.
