How to go about studying in a college in USA and playing college football (soccer) Watch
So I’m currently about to start my A-levels in September and was thinking about my future, for a while I have been interested in Studying in the USA, after I finish my A-levels and go on to my next step which would be university.
I also have a huge passion for football (soccer), and have seen online that along side studying you can play college football (soccer)
If there is anyone that can point me in the right path on how I can study in the USA and play college football (soccer), it would be a great help. I would like to study videography/ cinematography or something to do in the graphic design industry.
In any case, look at what colleges (i.e. universities) in the US have NCAA Division I Soccer teams, as those will be the ones with the best scholarships. In terms of academic "prestige" it's probably Stanford, Duke, UCLA or Berkeley, vs a bunch of unknown (to you anyway) names - and those may not even have div I soccer teams (although I imagine most of them will). Since those are prestigious academically as well as known to have good sports faciltiies/teams, the competition for scholarships there will likely be intense though. As before, a lot of the options are probably better known as sports schools than as good places to get a degree necessarily - this is fine if you wanted to continue in professional soccer in the US, but if you wanted to join a professional football team in the UK there are probably other routes which are better/necessary.
For your intended subject area, design schools tend not to be as represented in NCAA to my knowledge...however on the film side, a very notable exception is USC, which has an extremely well known film school (that tends to supply Hollywood) and at least a regionally well regarded sports representation (as the perennial rivals of UCLA, which itself is well represented in various NCAA brackets). So USC may be of particular interest to look into...
