Why study this course with us?
Our MA in Early Childhood is designed to meet the interests of a wide range of participants from nurseries, schools, universities, colleges and local authorities, as well as professionals working with young children outside of education – for example in children’s services and health and social care. The common factor for all potential participants is the desire to develop their expertise in the field of early childhood.
The blend of students from different professional backgrounds enables discussion, debate and the sharing of experiences in a supportive and welcoming environment, facilitated by staff who are experts in the field of early childhood.
Applicants should normally hold a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of a 2:1 classification in an area broadly related to early childhood.

Applicants with a 2:2 degree may also be considered if they can demonstrate, on application, their ability to work at Level 7.
