This is a flexible part-time degree offering the chance to study a maximum of 60 credits per year, completion of the course is between three-five years.
Delivery of this programme is a tripartite arrangement between yourself, personal tutor and practice facilitator. Learning for each work-based module is based on the development of a learning contract and consequently the following process will be adopted for each module.
Learning is assessed throughout your coursework including written assignments such as research projects, child observations and essays and seminar presentations plus a dissertation of approximately 20,000 words.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
