Recognise and champion the uniqueness of every child as you take a 'whole child' holistic approach to children, from birth to 18, and their families. You will have the opportunity to study the theory and practice through two distinct routes Early Years or Children and Young People.

Our interdisciplinary and global approach to study and research reflects a commitment to children's rights, social justice for children, child-centred learning and developing awareness of social divisions in childhood.

The Early Years route explores young children's learning, education and care across multiple settings. The Children and Young People route focuses more closely on critically examining concepts, contexts and intervention across different spheres of childhood. Both routes emphasise children and young people as social actors with rights and entitlements, according to their particular cultural and social differences.

We're committed to children's rights, social justice for children, child-centred learning and developing awareness of social divisions in childhood, and these themes are at the heart of this course, forming the basis of your study and research.
