I'm starting year 13 and I'm in a big dilemma. Do I follow my passion and do a coaching related degree at UCFB or do some other degree because I think it would give me some well paid job in the future?

I've fallen in love with the idea of becoming a football manager ever since I was 12 and I've been debating weather I should pursue this for over a year.

So my question here is : should I pursue my dream career or should I go for the safer option which is a business or Economics degree?

Well the thing is, a UCFB coaching related degree would be good for football management; but not a great deal else. Whereas with a business or economics degree there are lots of avenues that can be explored afterwards. However, if pursuing coaching would make you happier then you should think seriously about doing so.

My advice would be to research business and economics degrees (there's a difference) and have a thorough look to see whether it's something you'd be genuinely interested in or not. You shouldn't consider it if you'll find it boring.

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply 😁. The one dimentional aspect of UCFB is what puts me off. On the other hand in pursuing a career in football it does help because of how it includes many opportunities for work experience and work placements during the degree.

Do you think maybe a degree in something slightly less specialised like a 'Sports Management' degree would be a better viable option?

I'm really not an expert in this sort of area I'm afraid so wouldn't be able to say. Though my instinct says that maybe the UCFB course would be better than a generic sports management course for pursuing a football management/coaching career.
