Who can apply?

The programme is open to applications from domestic and international students studying at – or applying to study at – UOW for courses available at the Wollongong campus. To be accepted in the programme, you must be accepted into an academic course at the University of Wollongong or UOW College.

Class of 2021

UOW’s first session has kicked off with a full schedule of technical, tactical, strength and conditioning and recovery sessions planned for the year. Players get involved in UOW academic, co-curricular and social events which means they are gaining the knowledge, skills and experience to set them up for a rewarding professional career in the future.

Wrap Up of 2020

2020 saw the first cohort of 21 Global Football Programme students complete the programme. Throughout the year the programme participants took park in 114 field sessions, 60 gym sessions and 12 performance analysis sessions. This equated to almost 600 hours of activity for each student.

While COVID-19 restrictions affected many of the players’ seasons, the participants took part in 136 club matches scoring 35 goals and tallying 51 assists across the season. Two of the participants also contributed to their club teams winning their respective championships.

The Programme has been an amazing experience, combining football skills and technical work with Spurs' philosophy.
