Carnegie International Soccer Academy

International Scholarships available

Overview

Launching September 2020.

At the Carnegie International Soccer Academy we put education at the heart of your experience. We provide an opportunity to develop yourself as a soccer player while also studying for a qualification at one of the UK’s most popular universities.

We work in partnership with Leeds United Football Club, former champions of England and Champions League semi-finalists – and DFK International Sports Ltd – a coaching company boasting former professional footballers.

The coaching team includes Brian Deane – scorer of the first ever Premier League goal, and you will have opportunities to compete in matches against development squads of professional clubs from around the UK.

Our partnership with Leeds United Football Club and DFK International Sports Ltd – a team of elite soccer coaches, all former professionals – is a unique opportunity for you to continue your development as a soccer player while also studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification at our university.

Players on the coaching programme with the academy, will have the opportunity to test themselves against development squads of professional teams from the English Premier League and Football League.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

MA Sport Business

“My studies developed the business and communications skills I use every day in my job. The collaboration between the course tutors and the company was one of the biggest benefits: I was offered a placement within Nike's sales department, which led to me landing my first job - I've always dreamed of working at a global sports company that's constantly innovating.

Teaching and learning

Your weekly coaching programme will usually consist of 8 hours of training sessions, more than 2 hours of conditioning, and two competitive 90 minute matches. The coaching programme runs from August to May, a total of 40 weeks.

Activities will include match preparation (technical and tactical) and match analysis, gym training, fitness testing, swimming (recovery sessions) and injury prevention.
