Program Description

Complete this course successfully and you’ll be an honours graduate authorised to work with early years children in the UK. We've designed our course around sector requirements such as the Common Core of Knowledge and Skills for the UK Early Years Workforce. The curriculum has a blend of academic and practice-based modules, focusing first on the theory and skills that underpin children's learning and your own. A research module will help you prepare for the academic challenges ahead.

Notes:
• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250/year
