This well-established and successful FdA offers the most contemporary and current perspective on early childhood studies, making it a perfect choice to develop your skills and further a career in early education and care.


The course comprises six 20-credit modules at each level of study (six per year for full-time study), including Professional Skills and Development, Young Children’s Welfare and Wellbeing, Theories of Learning and Development, Perspectives on Childhood, Health and Physical Wellbeing, and Social and Emotional Development.


You will be given a strong core of knowledge in psychology, sociology, and the holistic development of children, and you will also have the opportunity to specialise in areas by selecting topics of interest, furthering links to your professional development. Engaging lectures, collaborative and independent study, opportunities for trips and events with the University, and guest speakers provide you with a uniquely supportive and challenging learning environment.


Assessment is via a range of innovative, challenging and professionally relevant methods. There are no exams, and you will be assessed throughout the academic year.
