Following government policy developments in services to young children, there has been a significant increase in demand for early year specialists.
Our course focuses on the study of sociology, psychology and human development in relation to young children (pre-birth to seven), preparing you to be a professional practitioner with a clear understanding of government policy and its effects.
You will be encouraged to tailor this course to specifically suit your needs and career aspirations. You will have support from the teaching staff to study an area within early childhood which you would like to work in, whilst developing a reflective, thoughtful approach to understanding this subject area. This course will broaden your horizons and open doors you didn’t know existed, allowing you to undertake work in a huge range of roles in a variety of workplaces, like nurseries, child centres or pre-school groups.
You will come to understand the theoretical developments of working with young children, and their application in practice, and develop a wide ranging understanding of early childhood. Child development will be examined through the context of care, international perspectives and learning.
Satisfactory enhanced criminal history checks will be required by all applicants prior to acceptance on the course.
The DBS in the UK is currently not able to conduct overseas criminal record checks. International applicants, those without British Citizenship and British Citizens with a significant period of overseas residency therefore require a criminal records check or certificate of good conduct from their home/overseas country prior to entry on to the course. A UK DBS check will be required after enrolment.
We welcome applications from those studying the Advanced Diploma qualifications and will consider them as an entry requirement for our undergraduate courses.

Our University welcomes applications from mature applicants who demonstrate academic potential. We usually require some evidence of recent academic study, for example completion of an access course, however relevant work and life experience may also be considered.
