Universities across the UK and the USA must be getting used to accepting application forms from BTEC Level 3 students studying with the Cardiff City FC Foundation.


Students studying on the education & sport programme have already received their results with the 250th student to graduate since the programme began in 2009 amongst them.


Four students completed all 19 units of study achieving Distinction in each unit, one of those students is 2nd year graduate Joanne Hodge.


Joanne’s time at the Foundation has been a great success, her impressive achievements on the Futsal court and in the classroom are no doubt down to hard work and fantastic support from parents, friends, family, teachers and fellow students.


The Foundation’s unique offering attracted Joanne to study on the Futsal & education programme and represent Cardiff City Football Club, she will now progress into higher education studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
