As part of GIS’ degree offering, students also have a choice of studying an online or blended programme to allow them the chance to further their career ambitions from the comfort of their own home and in a timeframe more suitable to their lifestyle.

All GIS students, including those studying online have access to the GIS global hubs at Inter Miami CF Stadium, New York’s Red Bull Arena, Atlanta’s brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Toronto FC’s BMO Field and the Melbourne Cricket Ground. At each hub, students and graduates can attend week-long GIS Global Summits, which are designed to enhance attendees’ knowledge and expertise of the international sports industry.

GIS also has a number of partnerships with some of the leading names in sport, including The Football Association, League Managers Association, The National League and The Rugby Football League, giving students access to some of the biggest and best minds in football and sport.
