FA A-Licence as a foreigner

Postby tropenpeter » Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:22 pm

Hey there,

I am a 22 year old German university student (one of my majors is Anglistics) and I am interested in getting my A-Licence in England. I am already in possesion of the German (UEFA) B-Licence which requires me to start the course in England.I will be studying there in one years's time. Currently I am responsible for an Under 13 squad of a First Bundesliga team.
I talked to the FA aswell as to the German Football Association already and they explained the procedure to me, the formalities are not that difficult.

I have the following questions :

- It seems like the UEFA A Prep Course is compulsory. Does anyone have experiences with the course. How does it work and is it doable ?

- How much will it cost me to finish the A-Licence (in total)?

- How high is the drop-out or failing-rate ? (Especially for foreigners)

- Did anyone complete the course already and how does the FA think about foreigners attending the courses ?

Hope those are not too many questions :)
