With plans to start in September 2017, Ulster University's BSc Hons Football Coaching and Business Management will be delivered on a part-time basis at the National Football Stadium, Windsor Park.
The innovative degree will allow students to combine theory and practice with the completion of professional UEFA coaching qualifications along with an undergraduate degree.
The new Ulster University course will be delivered in four day intensive blocks, covering everything from football policy planning and operations management to performance analysis and coaching science.
