Gemeg Education and The University Centre of Doncaster have teamed up to offer a unique online BSc degree in Sport Science and Coaching Football.
The programme will be delivered by the vastly-experienced staff at the University Centre of Doncaster, with support from Gemeg, and is accredited by the University of Hull. The three-year course is the first of its kind to be delivered entirely online and offers students the chance to study from home or abroad.
The course, which will help applicants to gain a stand-out skill set in the workplace, can assist students to gain a career in several areas, such as performance analysis, academy coaching and sports psychology. With modules such as Advanced Football Coaching Practice and Talent Development, the course offers the opportunity of wider career options for aspiring footballers, or perhaps a career in addition to football for part-time players.
Rohan Parmar, Business Development Manager at Gemeg, said: “Initial feedback from our Degree has been extremely encouraging, we have met with a number of Premier League and Football League clubs as well as private academies and non-league clubs, who are all massively excited to offer this to their young players.”
He added: “Young player development is key to any sports franchise both on and off the pitch, and we believe our BSc degree in Sport Science and Coaching Football is the next step in helping clubs to achieve that.”
In addition to formal study, Gemeg have formed a partnership with the University of Valencia, in Spain, which offers students the chance to take their study abroad in second or third year, allowing them to gain experience and knowledge from across Europe. Students who opt to study in Valencia will also have the unique opportunity to train at the excellent La Nucia centre, with local clubs providing the opportunity to expand their knowledge of European football.
