The time table in first year generally fits into a one week rota (I'm currently on a Week A/Week B timetable). When I was in my first year I studied 4 models, 2 of which were compulsory education models (Education for change and how young children learn and play) and then a module from a different course (This was compulsory when I was in first year - I chose health studies). Placement wasn't compulsory in first year, it was dependent upon which modules you chose to take. I chose to have a placement in my first year, it was a nine week placement that I attended once a week. The university organise the placement for you, they try to place you in a convenient location but they have a lot of people to place so this isn't always possible. In my first year of uni I was in on a Monday (12-1) a Tuesday (11-1 and 4-6) and a Thursday (9-12 and 1-3). I had placement on a Friday but this only from November to the end of January. I have really enjoyed the course, the lecturers are great and really inspiring/helpful. I can't really remember all of the modules that were on offer in first year but I know that you will take education for change and how young children learn and play (if they still have the same names) in your first year of study. When I was in first year education for change required 3 assignments and 1 presentation and how young children learn and play required 2 assignments and 1 presentation.

Hope this has all helped!!! Hope you enjoy your time at Bath Spa!!!

Thank you for an in depth reply, it's cleared up a few of my queries that I had!I'm guessing 4 modules is what the standard amount? From what you say the course is roughly 10 hours plus optional placement, I must admit I thought I'd spend more time at uni hehe! Did you go down the 3+1 path?
