Elevate your opportunities and receive expert mentorship here on CARDIFF CITY FC'S doorstep!

Lectures are produced by USW staff, but you study these materials remotely at Cardiff City House of Sport with us. You will also attend USW up to 3-times per year for Residential Study Visits. You’re also assigned a Cardiff City FC Foundation Mentor who facilitates your learning and supports the organisation of your weekly placement.

A key part of this degree is the increased amount of placement hours you will experience. You will undertake 4-8 hours per week in year 1 and 7-14 hours per week in years 2 and 3. These experiences will mainly be working within the remit of Cardiff City FC and will give you practical experience of working within the sports business and management industry.

You may also get a wider experience through opportunities via Cardiff City FC's sponsors and partners.

More information on course content can be found here. You can also get in touch with us below to register your interest, or to have a chat with us about the degree course!

Ultimately, all prospective students must apply through UCAS, and at that point, highlight which EFL Professional Club they want to be based at.

Although the UCAS Deadline has now passed, we can still help you apply directly to University of South Wales for 2024 entry! You can get in touch with us below.
