Continuing Studies

Higher Education offers opportunities to extend your studies to degree level. There are a range of study options including:

  • a full time honours degree programme
  • a part time degree studied over 3-6 years
  • a Foundation Degree studied full time or part time (2-3 years) with the option to progress to a ‘Top Up’ third year that leads to the award of an honours degree

You can start a degree at any age, as long as you meet the specific entry requirements for the programme you want to study. For those wanting to extend their study in Early Childhood there is a range of undergraduate programmes in Early Childhood Studies or Childhood Studies. Some universities offer opportunities to study alongside another subject such as English, Psychology or Sociology.

Many Early Childhood degrees have placement opportunities to enable you to apply your learning to practice. The type of placement offered is programme specific and many include assessments that are mapped onto the Level 3 Early Educator qualification and/or Early Childhood Graduate Practitioner Competencies.

You may want to progress to become an Early Years Teacher (0-5) (EYITT), a Teacher with QTS (3-7, 5-11), Social Work or a career in health. You have opportunities to complete these as an undergraduate or after your first degree as post-graduate student.
