Durham University is seeking to recruit postgraduate scholars for the 2019/20 academic year for Women's Soccer.
Durham's soccer team won the National Championship in 2014/15, 2016/17 and 2017/18, and will be aiming to win the title again in 2019/20.
The opportunities for our students go beyond the inter-university programme however, as our partnership club - Durham Women FC - compete in the second tier of British Football. Durham Women FC are currently 3rd in their division and pushing for promotion, narrowly behind Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. They made the quarter finals of the FA cup this season before being knocked out 1-0 by Chelsea FC. This is certainly a great opportunity for soccer players looking to continue their career whilst pursuing a top-class Master’s degree.
