Routes to an undergraduate degree

Next Information Session:

Whether you’re considering our Gateway, 2+2 full-time degree or one of our part-time programmes or just want to talk through the options, come along to our Information Session and find out more about our flexible study routes where formal qualifications may not be required.

2+2 degree pathway

If you don't have formal qualifications and wish to study locally for a university degree, this pathway is for you. The first two years of our BA (Hons) Social Studies are taught at a local college enabling you to gain the skills and confidence to prepare you for the final two years here at the University.

All students start with the BA (Hons) Social Studies and are then able to transfer to the more specialised BA (Hons) Health and Social Policy in your 3rd year if you wish.

Early Childhood foundation and BA (Hons) degree

Our Early Childhood programme offers you the chance to combine your study with work and family commitments. You might be an early years educator, a parent, a grandparent or a health worker, or simply wish to extend your knowledge and understanding about Early Childhood.

Our foundation degree helps you to develop a range of academic, professional and key skills. However, if you wish to take your study further, the degree will also offer you a preparation towards an Honours Degree and is an important pathway to the BA (Hons) Early Childhood.

Part-time degrees

A flexible programme which is structured in a flexible way, enabling you to study at your own pace (up to 10 years). There are a number of evening modules but you will need to be able to study daytime too if you wish to choose from the full range of modules on offer. We welcome your application whatever your background and experience.

There are a range of subjects you can study as a part-time degree:

*daytime study only
