Pick the path that’s right for you
The Early Childhood Education (Hons) programme is offered in full-time (3years) and part-time (6 years) routes. Entry is normally at level 4, but it is possible at level 6 with suitable qualifications (e.g., a relevant foundation degree). What this means is that the degree is suitable for prospective students who have just completed their Level 3 studies and early childhood practitioners who want to increase their qualifications. If you’re passionate about improving early childhood education, then we’ve got this flexible programme of study that’s right for you. New intake normally takes place in September.
The programme offers you an opportunity to apply knowledge in practice through placement in all three years. It offers you an opportunity to understand and critically evaluate a range of theoretical and practice-based knowledge and skills that are both specific to the early childhood sector and relevant in many other professions. This will support you in your future career and enable you to stand out from other candidates when seeking employment.
