This is an exciting course for male and female students who are 14 years of age and over who have a passion for football. It offers the opportunity to study our GCSE, A-Level, Combined Studies or International Foundation Programme in the mornings and have football training sessions led by professional coaches in the afternoon.
This is a unique opportunity for students to gain qualifications for entry to university alongside intensive football training which could lead to playing professional or semi-professional football in the future. Football training is added to students’ timetables without impacting on the core study requirements to gain their qualification.
The UK education system has a world-wide reputation for quality, with universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, University College London (UCL) and Imperial College London consistently ranked in the world’s top ten. By studying at Abbey College Manchester, you will be provided with an unrivaled opportunity to gain entry to the best universities the UK has to offer and make the very best start to your career.
A Level (Advanced Level) courses can be studied over two years or 18 months. A Level courses are the most commonly used qualifications for entry to UK universities.
The International Foundation Programme (IFP) is a one year course specifically designed for direct access to study at UK universities. A large portion of our IFP students go on to study at the elite ‘Russell Group’ of top UK universities.
GCSEs (General Certificates of Secondary Education) can be studied over one year, two year or 18 month periods. Many universities will ask for at least 5 passes at grade C or above for entry (often including GCSE Mathematics and English passes).
“I’m planning to go to King’s College, and studying here has helped me to achieve that goal. My personal tutor helped me significantly with my personal statement. I’ve met lots of friends and we like to go to the city centre at weekends, there is a big variety of good food.”
“Teachers are friendly, approachable and helpful. Lessons are interactive, which I ﬁ nd more helpful than old-fashioned regurgitation of textbooks. My classmates work really hard, pushing me to achieve highly.”
