The degree is designed to be responsive to the employment needs of the sector and the region. The dissertation, as well as other modules at level 6, encourages students to further develop established techniques of analysis and to make use of scholarly reviews and primary sources, using techniques previously explored in their studies. The course presents the opportunity to gain an early-years qualification that is ‘Full and Relevant’, which will enable you to be counted in ratios in early-years settings. This course will enable you to continue your studies in careers such as teaching, play therapy and family support.
This course is validated by Oxford Brookes University. Applications are made through UCAS – code X313.
You will be supported through group and individual tutorials. Students also have access to the Brookes Academic Support.
