With students from a diverse range of backgrounds, our two-year programme will encourage you to engage with fundamental questions surrounding Early Years care, learning and development and their relationship to children and adults working in the sector.
Alongside access to suitable work-related experience in an Early Years setting for around
150 hours per year, you will also require:
- 112 UCAS points in a relevant Level 3 BTEC qualification or A-Levels
- GCSE Grade C or above in English
- A successful interview with a Teacher.
All applicants will be interviewed.
What will I study?
There are currently greater expectations of childcare and education than ever before, as understanding grows of how early interventions in children’s lives can make a tremendous difference to their future learning, development and well-being.

What could I do next?
There are clear progression routes that facilitate opportunities for students to progress towards another qualification. On graduation, graduates could follow a career in Early Years practice or could use their Foundation degree as entry into the BA (Honours) Education Studies and Early Years at USP College.
