The FSI team will take into account each one of the enrollment applications received for the different programs and, although we do not require a specific previous educational level, it is a necessary prerequisite that the student is over 18 years old. The demanding evaluation system of the FSI's programmes guarantees a high level of competence of the professionals who obtain the certificate.

Which languages are the FSI programs taught in?

Each course or module within an FSI programme is taught by a different teacher. The lessons are either in english or in spanish, which allows the student to choose the language preferred. The videos that are recorded in English have Spanish subtitles, and vice versa.

Which are the different payment methods?

For the FSI Masters, there are three options: one-time payment and two installment payment modalities, which are:
1. A fractional payment divided into three installments of the same amount: an initial payment at the moment of the purchase, a second payment in the third month and a final payment in the sixth month.
2. A fractional payment divided into six installments of the same amount:an initial payment at the moment of the purchase and five remaining payments every two months.
Approximately 10 days before each payment, FSI will send a notice by email to remind you of the date of the next payment.

FSI is a private school of Football Science that certifies its courses through the support of its prestigious Faculty of FSI.

However, we are working with several international universities interested in recognizing FSI certified studies as a basis for their university degrees.
