Gemeg Education Launches New Online Degree in Football

Tue 11th Oct 2016 | Football Club Management

Gemeg Education have teamed up with the University Centre of Doncaster to create a new BSc Degree in Sport Science and Coaching Football that is delivered entirely online.

For the very first time, Gemeg are offering a degree that covers a whole range of topics across the football industry that allows young people the opportunity to study in their own environment, be it from home, at their club or abroad. 

Aspiring footballers are increasingly looking at attaining additional qualifications to provide them with wider career options and, perhaps more in the case of non-league footballers, a career in addition to football. 

The programme is delivered via the experienced staff at University Centre of Doncaster with support from Gemeg with the three year course the first of its kind to be offered entirely online and is accredited by the University of Hull.

Covering all areas of the game modules include, Foundations of Psychology in Football, Applied Physiology in Strength & Conditioning, Advanced Football Coaching Practice and Talent Development in Football.

Students will be equipped with a skill set that will make them stand out in the competitive workplace environment. Possible careers include performance analysis, football coaching, coach-educator, sport development officer, strength and conditioning coaching, sports psychology or academy coaching.

In addition to formal study, Gemeg have formed a partnership with the University of Valencia, giving students the opportunity to study abroad during their second or third year.

Students can train at the fantastic La Nucia centre in Spain with local based teams furthering the young player’s knowledge of the European game.

Alex Williamson, 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.

“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.”
