Overview

Join education professionals from all over the world: our postgraduate courses will launch your career in education, or aid your continuing professional development.

Our graduates work in the UK and overseas in schools, universities, and local and national government. Some are teachers and lecturers. Others use their skills in policy development, education, administration, psychology and social work. Our research has a direct impact on educational theory, policy and practice; we’re supporting the development of children, families and learning communities through dedicated research centres.

This one-year, full-time course covers a broad range of issues, encourages students to reflect on their experiences of early childhood education current policy, and addresses theory and research relevant to their interests.

The content of the course follows that of the internationally renowned, part-time mixed-mode, distance-learning course, which has been running successfully since 1998.
