Masters Degree Scholarship With Durham

We have the fantastic opportunity to offer another British or European player to study for a masters at Durham University & play WSL football

Our successful partnership with Durham University has seen players Jen King, Caroline Dixon (club captain) and Amelia Pereira all play for Durham in the FA Women's Super League whilst completing a part time masters degree. This year we have recruited Nicki Gears who joins us after 4 years in America at university and current first team captain Sarah Wilson.

With course fees completely paid for with various other opportunities on offer this is a great chance for anyone, whether it be coming towards the end of their playing career, looking for academic advancement, or just a new and exciting challenge.

The chance to play in the FA Women's Super League as well as the BUCS championship (currently held by Durham University) and combining a masters degree on a part time basis is a wonderful opportunity for a student athlete.

You will need to hold an undergraduate degree and hold a British or European passport.

Experience in playing at WSL, FAWPL level or of a similar standard abroad is desirable.
