Course summary

**We're ranked 3rd in the UK for our undergraduate Education programmes, including BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies with Foundation Year (Guardian League Tables 2020)**You will study very broad subjects in your foundation year, which is designed to prepare you for a range of courses, not just one particular BA degree.So although you apply to study a BA in a specific course – in this case BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies – the foundation year sets you up for a number of other possible degrees starting the following year. It may be that you don’t end up doing a degree in precisely the same subject as your foundation year.This flexibility is one of the great things about the foundation year category Society, Childhood and Education; it allows you to find out more about your interests and talents before focusing on a three year degree. The foundation year also helps us to make sure we help to match you to the degree that fits you best. You will be assessed for progression on to your second year, which would be the first year of your BA-level degree.With the wellbeing and rights of babies and young children at its centre, our BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies programme provides you with a range of teaching and learning experiences so that you can contribute to a changing society, particularly within the field of Early Childhood (babies and young children from birth to 5). This course provides placement opportunities throughout and presents many rewarding opportunities for you to explore once you have graduated in many different institutions, such as schools, nurseries and charities.
