"Jeg tror meget på, at man også kan bruge det til noget positivt i sin respektive sport, at læse ved siden af. Det vil uden tvivl kræve en masse selvdisciplin og hårdt arbejde, men i sidste ende, er det 100 % det værd at gøre det."
Frederik Helstrup, fodboldspiller og studerende på Jura deltid på SDU
In cooperation with the international players union FIFPro, University College of Northern Denmark (UCN) offers an education in Sport Management as an online education. The programme is an opportunity to combine the passion for sports and events with an understanding of the business mechanisms that lies behind.
The programme is a two-step degree: first, a 2 year AP degree in "Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management" with specialization in Sport & Event followed by a 1½ year BA top-up degree in Sport Management.
Notice that, as FIFPro Online Academy is an international offer, all communication (including lectures, assignments etc.) will be in English.
FIFPro Online Academy is 100% online, making it extremely accessible and flexible. No attendance is required, and you decide when and where during the day you want to study and take the lectures. Exams can be done online as well, and the final product (the degree and competences) will be equal to studying ordinarily.
FIFPro Online Academy is organized using the following principles:
- Lectures are recorded and uploaded online, whereby they can be accessed any time and from anywhere
- All communication is online - no transport and attendance required
- Assignments and projects will be handed in (and possibly presented) online
- Exams are done online or at local education center
- All students are assigned a professional mentor, who will be of assistance with any questions the student might have throughout the programme
Be aware, that studying online requires a lot of discipline and everyday structure. The programme will cover and include the same material, assignments and exams as studying ordinarily - FIFPro Online Academy is simply a way of making it flexible and possible for you to structure your own time.
