We've been asked to advertise this by the Supporters' Clubs regarding the news on the new University & College of Football Business that will be launched at Turf Moor tomorrow.
The information below is via a letter from Paul Fletcher to the Supporters' Clubs.
Re: University & College of Football Business
Prior to the public launch of the world's first institution of higher education in football business at Turf Moor tomorrow (Friday), I write to introduce the concept to you as a valued supporter of Burnley Football Club.
The University & College of Football Business is being run as a separate entity to Burnley FC but as the first educational establishment of its type to offer three different degree courses in the football industry will be a valuable addition to Turf Moor in bringing round-the-year usage to parts of our wonderful stadium.
For the full package of information on UCFB and how it will operate, see: www.ucfb.com
The UCFB website provides a full Prospectus, which can also be requested from Student Recruitment & Admissions Officer Lucy Phelan by email at email@example.com
The three degrees courses that are available beginning September, 2011 are:
Football Business & Finance (BA Hons)
Football Business & Media (BA Hons)
Football Business & Marketing (BA Hons)
All programmes are three-year degree courses, validated by our educational partner Buckinghamshire New University.
These degree courses provide the opportunity for a student to study a traditional subject area, motivated by an industry of great interest.
If any members of your family of university age are considering a university course and want to study at 'their club' to gain a valued qualification in football business please contacts us.
For further information, email Lucy Phelan or call our admissions office on 0843 208 2222
