BA (Hons) Education Development and Society (Top up) Level 6
This top-up year will enhance your understanding of the psychological and sociological factors that impact upon education and development.
Students completing this programme may be able to progress successfully on to a range of higher level study programmes, including Master’s qualifications in Psychology, Social Work and PGCE (Primary and Tertiary). You may also be able to progress to working within teaching roles, management roles, family liaison and welfare roles, as well as safeguarding roles within local authorities and within the police.
- We consider a variety of qualifications and relevant experience, and each application is assessed on its own merit.
Each module is worth a specified number of credits: you take a combination of compulsory (and if available optional modules) enabling you to cover key subject knowledge while developing your own interests. For full time students a total of 120 credits will be studied in each academic year. In the majority of cases this will consist of 6 modules. For part time students it will depend on the intensity of your studies.

“During my career I have gained a broad range of skills relating to early years education and childcare, and I can now pass that knowledge on to new learners. It’s fantastic to support learners in achieving their goals and helping them find employment in this rewarding industry.”Stefanie Crinks
