At FC Malaga City students are provided with the unique opportunity to be fully immersed in a professional soccer environment over a ten-month season. Our academic setting accommodates the fluid schedule of the high-level training with the academy’s UEFA A/Pro-licensed coaches. With classroom facilities and academic resources on site players will benefit from a modern approach to learning through a mixture of online lectures, face-to-face tuition, seminars, practical activities and work experience. By working closely with our providers, we can ensure that players can feasibly complete both football and education programmes to the best of their ability.
Alongside our highly esteemed education programmes, FC Malaga City is also delighted to provide our players with access to intensive language courses alongside their playing experience.
Whilst learning another language is a highly desired and valuable skill, this also meets all the requirements and criteria needed to obtain a student visa for Non-EU residents- allowing our players to remain in Spain past the 3 month travel visa remit. Our education partners provide a step by step guide and assistance throughout this process, making it as
simple as possible for players and their families to navigate through the various steps needed to acquire the visa. Please note that the cost of the language course and visa assistance is not included as part of the FCMC program fee and is handled directly with the our education partner.
The language courses are also available for players who are interested in taking a language course but don't need to obtain the student visa at a reduced rate. More information on the language courses on offer is available upon request.
