MFC International Academy offers student-athletes from around the world the chance to combine studying and playing in a truly world-class, professional environment which will nurture lifelong memories and skill sets.
Student-athletes choose to study either a Football Studies or Sports Management degree, whilst training and playing as a full-time footballer.
Our programmes are meticulously designed in order to provide all of our student-athletes with a blended study schedule. This ensures that the optimum amount of time is spent in both the classroom and on the field - promoting exemplary standards to be maintained within both settings.
Studying either of these degree programmes will provide the student-athlete with both the necessary qualifications and the experiences to excel within both the sport and business sectors upon graduation.
Whilst enrolled on our International programme, student-athletes will be provided with a wealth of opportunities to showcase their talents in competitive settings.
At the forefront of this is the chance to appear in the illustrious British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues.
In addition, student-athletes are also provided with the opportunity to represent our Club at an amateur level across U-19, U-21, and U-23 development leagues.
Alongside these acclaimed opportunities, student-athletes will also compete within our professional academy games programme, featuring regular exhibition games against professional and semi-professional opposition. Ranging from U-18 to U-23 sides, these fixtures take place across a nine-month season spanning from September - June.
Irrespective of whether student-athletes are male or female - they will enjoy the same world-class coaching and registered into competitive leagues where their talent will undoubtedly shine!
