10 Day UK Taster Trip 2020

Experience life as a student soccer player with the i2i International Soccer Academy as part of our exciting 2020 UK Taster Trip.

Soccer players from all over the world will descend on York and Newcastle in March 2020 as part of a 10 Day UK Taster Trip at the i2i International Soccer Academy.

This excellent opportunity, which runs from Monday 2nd March to Wednesday 11th March 2020, gives players a unique insight into living, studying and playing in England, whilst undertaking a three year university degree at York St John University (YSJ) or Northumbria University.

The packed schedule will combine daily training sessions and matches with tours of both universities, a Live Professional Fixture and a EPL stadium tour.

All of the players on the taster trip will also have access to all of YSJ's and Northumbria Universities ‘state of the art’ sports facilities – from the grass and turf (3G) pitches to the strength & conditioning suite.

Players who attend the taster will be expertly assessed by our former EPL coaches, and those with the required playing ability coupled with the required academic background, will be shortlisted for a full time degree at York St John University or Northumbria University.

What’s included?

 Excludes flights which need to be purchased separately

We are also able to send a "Time Off Letter" to your high school, as this is classed as an official University visit whilst having the UK soccer experience.

Head of Recruitment at the i2i International Soccer Academy Corey Roper said: "Players often ask me what life will be like as a student with the i2i International Soccer Academy. This 10 Day UK Taster Trip is designed to answer that question and more. It gives the players the opportunity to experience every element of the Academy for themselves, as well as experiencing both York St John University and Northumbria University.

"Choosing a University is one of the biggest decisions we ever have to make in life, but we're confident that once a player has experienced the wide range of opportunities available at the i2i International Soccer Academy, they will be certain that this is where they want to spend the next three years."
