International Degree Programme

The higher education pathway is in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), voted as The Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year for Teaching Quality 2019. The award recognises Sheffield Hallam’s consistently high student satisfaction scores, as measured by the independent National Student Survey (NSS).

The NEFA international degree programme sees the opportunity for any non UK passport holder to come and complete a 3 year degree with SHU whilst also being part of NEFA’s full-time football development programme.

This programme is designed for players still serious about their football futures (and working in the game) whilst also wanting to continue with their academic study.

The football and games programme sees the vital opportunity to train full time within the NEFA coaching programme as well as play in a men’s first team environment as well as against professional academies.

International Degree Programme

The degrees are over a 3 year period and the student attends the campus at Sheffield and the football timetable is adapted to work around study times and transport will be provided from university campus to the NEFA training base.
