Course summary

Open to UK and EU students only, our BA Childhood Studies (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. During your Year Zero, you study three academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module . This course lays the foundations for a career working with infants and children, whether that be in education, health care or children's services. You gain a solid understanding of child development including behavioural patterns, key influences and challenging experiences they face in early childhood and the consequences of this in later life. Our staff draw on years of both clinical and professional experience and expertise in their field to deliver excellence in teaching and research. Our Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies is internationally recognised as one of the leading centres for the work on the role of the unconscious mind in mental health, as well as in culture and society more generally. We’re ranked top 10 in the UK for research (REF, 2014) and consistently receive high student satisfaction scores.
