Do you want the opportunity to further your studies, but are working or volunteering and don’t want to have to give that up? With the opportunity to study for a Foundation Degree in the field of early childhood, now might be the perfect time to do just that. Our Foundation Degree courses are designed to be studied without your having to leave work – in fact, they work alongside your career with young children. Here at BGU we value the knowledge and experience you have gained so far in your career and want to help you expand on this to enhance the support provided for young children. This work focused degree is a combination of practice-based learning and campus based sessions which run once a week so that you are able to continue in employment throughout the duration of the course.
