Early Years and Childhood Studies

What is an Early Years and Childhood Studies top-up course for and how can I apply?

Early Years and Childhood Studies top-up courses are suitable for students who have a qualification at HE5 level i.e. foundation degree or HND, or significant professional experience in an Early Years and Childhood Studies setting or similar field. It allows students to study at HE6 to obtain a full Undergraduate degree.

You could be considered for transfer or to continue your studies if you have completed your first or second year in a similar Undergraduate degree. A successful application should evidence academic writing, a portfolio of work for projects completed, transcripts, as well as any other documents that are relevant or advised by the Admissions Team or the Programme Leader to meet the entry requirements.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Early Years and Childhood Studies Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Early Years and Childhood Studies subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
