University courses available with Community Trust

With A-Level results day today, Bristol City Community Trust still have places available on their University courses through clearing.

Based at Ashton Gate stadium, students will have the opportunity to further their education within an inspirational, purpose-built learning environment.

WHAT CAN YOU STUDY?

Foundation Degree Community Football Coaching and Development

This is a two-year programme run in partnership with the University of South Wales, with the option to complete a third year, topping up to a full BSc Honours Degree.

The course provides students with a unique opportunity to complete a degree, whilst also gaining experience through coaching placements and opportunities as part of Bristol City Football Club.

The purpose of the course is to set students up for a career in coaching football or the wider sporting industry.

Further information can be found here or here.

BA (Hons) Sports Business and Entrepreneurship 

This is a three-year programme run in partnership with University of the West of England.

Our Sports Business Entrepreneurship Programme is very much “practice led” with teamwork and entrepreneurship both being central to the programme. 

You will be placed in a Team Company where you will support each other in your learning and undertake a variety of “projects” which will include real business ventures. This is a programme that is “light” on the formal delivery of knowledge through lectures etc., but “heavy” on working in teams, self-managed learning and learning by doing.

The purpose of this course is to give you real life business experience to allow you to graduate with not only a qualification but the experience and skills required within the industry.

Further information can be found here.

HOW TO APPLY

A-Level and BTEC applicants can be accepted on each course. Should you wish to apply for either course or want to find out more, please get in touch via the contact details below:
