By completing the BA (Hons) Education Studies and Early Years with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University you will be able to make a significant difference to children's future development and educational attainment.
- A range of work-related learning and observation opportunities linked to the early years
- Explore the sociological, historical, political, psychological and philosophical issues that impact on the lives and learning of young children
- Opportunities to undertake a work-related placement overseas
- Graduate with a solid foundation for a child-centred career
Please see guidance on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Education Studies and Early Years honours degree programme yet. Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).

Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.
Please see the programme specification document for further details on this course.
Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose.
We recognise that all students perform differently depending on how they are being assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. Coursework may therefore include essays, reports, presentations, newspapers, posters, diaries and a dissertation. Exams are limited to the main core modules.
Constructive feedback is important in helping you to identify your strengths and areas where you may need to put in more work, so this will be provided regularly as you progress through each module.
