Early Years

‘Inspiring.' 'Life-changing.' 'Supportive’. These are just some of the adjectives graduates of the Early Years Education MA have used to describe their learning journey on this course.

This Government-funded course allows recent graduates and practitioners that are already employed in Early Years settings to train as Early Years teachers in one academic year, alongside studying for a full academic Master’s degree.
