Program description

Early Childhood Studies (Including Foundation Year) BA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Early Childhood Studies (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) will open doors for you to enter a career in early childhood care, educational or advisory settings. It has a built-in foundation year that will prepare you for undergraduate study and is the ideal choice if you don’t meet the necessary requirements to enter the standard three-year course.

On our course you’ll benefit from extra time to work on your study and transferable skills, but you’ll also graduate with the same award and title as students on the three-year degree.

On our Early Childhood Studies (Including Foundation Year) bachelor’s degree you’ll study the play, development and learning of children from birth to six years old. This will be taught in relation to practice in early childhood settings and within a socio-cultural context.

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other degrees with a foundation year, which will give you an opportunity to discuss the subjects you study with students that have different academic perspectives. It will also allow you to meet students outside of your course and expand your network, which you might find useful when job hunting after graduation.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
  • English Language GCSE at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent)
  • Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check

To study a degree at London Met, you must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. If you require a Tier 4 student visa you may need to provide the results of a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.
