Course outline

If you have recently completed the Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies or similar and wish to continue your studies and gain a degree level qualification, then our BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies Top-up course is for you. Attendance is four hours per week from September to July at one of the university or college locations where the course is run. Throughout the programme you are encouraged to reflect critically, to listen carefully to the views of others, to question values and opinions, to investigate evidence and to draw upon your own informed conclusions. You are encouraged to develop as independent learners and to extend your skills of collaborating and negotiation. The teaching approach is often activity-based and participatory, so you are expected to take a full and responsible part.

Course content

Modules: · Approaches to Numeracy and Literacy Acquisition within the Early Years · The Reflective Practitioner · Individual Research Project · Global Perspectives on Childhood

Entry requirements

Applicants for the programme must be in employment (paid or voluntary) within an early years setting for at least two days per week. As the programme involves "substantial access to children" it will be a condition of acceptance to obtain satisfactory enhanced

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. If necessary, this check can be processed through the university, with students required to pay the appropriate fee.  This course is designed to enable students with a Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies or Early Years (or a similar, relevant qualification, such as foundation degree or HND in an early years or educational setting) to top up to a full honours degree in Early Childhood Studies
