Shakers Football University

24 May 2016


The Football University is to open its first campus at Bury FC’s Gigg Lane Stadium this evening and is one of the first in the country to offer a Higher National Diploma in Sports Coaching and Development.


The HND is a 2-year study program, with the option to top-up the third year to a full BA Honours Degree.


The program combines education with practical work experience, and students can represent partner football clubs as part of their playing pathway. Stockport County, Prestwich Heys and others will provide playing pathways for students with footballing ability. There are also coaching pathways with local grassroots clubs, academies and girls football. Marketing and business work experience is available through Bury FC.


The Football University is holding an Open Evening for potential new students for September. The Open Evening is tonight, from 5pm-9pm. Location is Bury FC, Education Campus, Gigg Lane, Bury, BL9 9HR.


Any students that have completed A-levels, or a BTEC Level 3 diploma are welcome to apply. Places are limited so do not miss your chance to sign up! Students already committed to UCAS applications are still able to apply.
