BA (Hons) Early Childhood (progression from Foundation Degree)

Our early childhood programme offers you the chance to combine your study with work and family commitments. Students can progress from the Foundation Degree in Early Childhood to achieve a BA (Hons) Early Childhood.

BA early childhood

The course offers you an opportunity to gain a BA (Hons) Early Childhood in just over a year, from the summer term in the first academic year to the end of the summer term the following academic year. You will be able to study for the award while you work, part or full-time. You learn how to carry out research in early childhood and are supported to do a piece of research on a topic that interests you and present your findings to different audiences, including your peers. You have the option to specialise in a particular area to gain a named award, i.e. a BA (Hons) Early Childhood Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disability, or Leadership and you will also explore a range of international perspectives on early childhood, which you can apply to your own research area. You are encouraged to draw on your own personal experience and make links between your study at university, your personal experience and your professional practice in the field of early childhood.

Success stories

"Warwick has an amazing body of staff who are always ready and willing to answer any questions you might have. From day one of the induction evening, expectations were clearly set out and we were signposted to any resources we might need and although the campus was a little intimidating at first, I think we all soon began to feel confident in our surroundings."
