The University is small and intimate, yet offers the vast number of degree programs that we expect from major universities.
The staff at the University of Chester and UDA Soccer Academy is superb and can provide learning experience, individual attention, and a tight knit community that my son will rely on.

The most impressive aspect for me is their commitment to the player's education. They prioritize students and we were reminded of this the entire tour. The interaction and training with the coaching staff was exceptional. They have a wealth of knowledge and are eager to work with the players. The UDA Summer Tour was very eye opening and I thank the incredible staff for such an amazing experience. Seamus and Joel are the best!"

UDA Soccer Academy program is truly one of a kind program where academic success is at the forefront of everything they do, along with the best-in-class football academy. What we experienced went above and far beyond all of our expectations.
As a parent, I am extremely excited and look forward to the opportunity for my son, Brandon, to be a part of the UDA Soccer academy program at University of Chester in the Fall of 2019.
If any student or parent is looking for a best-in-class degree abroad program in the UK that is coupled with a best-in-class football academy, you need to look no further.

"[UDA has] become an extended arm of our family and I’m not sure how our family would have handled this transition without them. The UDA staff truly cares and honestly wants [the students] to succeed. ... What an amazing opportunity this has been for our son, and the UDA staff makes it comforting for us to know our son is in good hands."

"UDA has provided the opportunity of a lifetime for my son. UDA, in all aspects, supports the student and their family while studying and playing abroad in the UK. They understand the sacrifices and hardships that can occur as an international student.
There is a sense of care that is felt with the students, family, coaches and staff that resembles a “family” away from home. It is understood that in order to be successful, the student needs to be healthy in a mental and physical capacity which is exemplified through their teachings and examples. UDA has implemented many protective measures in order to instill this strategy throughout the process.
My son is thriving in the UDA experience. As a parent, I feel that UDA has provided me with the trust that my son will be given the necessary tools to be successful in his academic as well as his athletic fulfillment."
