This MA is ideal if you are an international student wishing to explore early years education in the UK. You will study both the practical and theoretical aspects of education in the zero-to-five-years age range. Early Years learning primarily focuses on the following ideas:

At Sussex, we are proud of our innovative approaches to teaching and education courses. We’ve got a network of over 150 locals secondary, primary and nursery schools working together with the University to provide work placements for our education students.
