About Education (Early Childhood Studies) at University of Huddersfield

If you're looking to develop your career within the specialist field of early childhood education, then this course could be for you. You'll have the opportunity to focus on current issues faced by early year professionals and you'll study early years education in international contexts. Themes include children's rights, sociology of childhood, psychological perspectives on childhood and international approaches to early years education. The course can be tailored to suit you to help ensure your knowledge and academic skills progress throughout the course.

The course combines knowledge about practical aspects of the early years curriculum with the opportunity to bring a theoretical understanding to help to deepen and challenge your thinking.

You'll be taught by an outstanding team of teachers; in fact we are ranked in the top ten for Education in the Guardian University Guide (2017) for the seventh consecutive year. You'll also have access to our extensive professional and academic network which feeds directly into course design and delivery and to excellent facilities and specialist equipment.

Titles of work undertaken by students on this course have included:
• Poverty and the Externalising Behaviour of Children Aged Eight Years and Under: A Systematic Review
• School Readiness: What does this mean to staff and parents from two contrasting pre-school settings both serving the same disadvantaged community?

A postgraduate qualification is a great way to stand out from your colleagues and position yourself for a promotion or pursue a career change.  In fact, here at Huddersfield, 94.8% of our postgraduates find employment or go onto further study within six months of graduating.  9 in 10 of them go onto work in professional or managerial roles.
