Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) have signed a player education development agreement offering a special Sports And Fitness Diploma Programme for JDT Academy trainees.
    The programme will offer an option to the JDT Academy trainees to continue their studies as they chase their dreams in becoming footballers, in line with the JDT management’s hope of focusing on the trainees’ future and career directions.
    The trainees under the diploma programme will also be given an option to do a Bachelor’s Degree programme to ensure they are equipped with a more complete education for their future.
    The collaboration will see 27 trainees aged 18 and above being registered as UTM students under the programme on a full-time basis soon.
    JDT and UTM have had a fantastic relationship in recent years with JDT Academy trainees living full-time at the UTM hostel and using their sports facilities.
    The JDT Academy is the only full-time professional football academy that offers football training, education and accommodation. Luaskan Kuasamu Johor.
