60 Chinese football coaches will spend three months studying at Bournemouth University (BU) this summer on a British Council China UK Football Study Programme project.

The Chinese football coaches will participate in a specially developed programme to improve their skills and knowledge in collaboration with BU and AFC Bournemouth. 

The strategic partnership between BU and AFC Bournemouth was a key factor in creating a bespoke three-month programme. 

BU submitted for funding to the British Council China UK Football Study Programme,which was announced following the UK-China Government Summit in September 2015. BU was one of only three successful UK Universities from the 35 who put in a bid. 

Key delegates from China were in Bournemouth for a two-day preparation visit ahead of the study programme, and had the chance to find out more about BU and AFC Bournemouth - as well as tour of the university campus and an opportunity to hear from the academics and coaches who will lead the programme.
