Early childhood studies
The Early Childhood Studies course can lead to a career with children

Press Release - 19 July 2005

Opportunity to study early childhood

If you are considering a career working with young children, there is still time to apply for the degree in Early Childhood Studies being run by the Department of Education at University of Bath in Swindon.

The BA(Honours) degree is being offered as both a full-time and a part-time course, and begins in late September 2005. It will be delivered over two sites – at the University of Bath in Swindon’s Oakfield campus and at the Claverton campus in Bath – giving students the chance to take advantage of all the University’s facilities.

The course is suitable for anyone who already has an intermediate degree level qualification, such as an HND, an NVQ Level 4 or a Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies. Anyone who doesn’t have an HND or foundation degree but has a relevant qualification of a similar level and some experience of working with children may also be eligible to join the course.

The course units include education psychology, children and families, child care research and practice and an introduction to research methods.

Dr Rita Chawla-Duggan, who runs the course, says potential students who may have been out of education for a while will be well supported.

“We know returning to study can be daunting, so we try to make it as easy as possible,” says Dr Chawla-Duggan.

“Whether you want to ask questions about the course content or about crèche facilities, we’re more than happy to answer them’’.
