We offer opportunities for postgraduate research leading to the qualification of PhD, postgraduate study through our flagship MSc programme, and access to education through our free innovative massive open online course on football and our credit-bearing course through the Office of Lifelong Learning.

The University has pioneered the Educated Pass project which helps teenage boys think about how the school curriculum is relevant to them, and how pursuing their studies could help them achieve a career in football.
The project works in partnership with the Scottish Youth Football Association (SYFA), Edinburgh College and West Lothian College. Each year Educated Pass works with local youth football teams throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians and North Lanarkshire.
