A warm welcome to you from the Childhood and Youth team! We are delighted that you are going to be studying with us and can’t wait to meet you and get started. We are passionate about making a positive difference in our diverse and plural society. Our programme is designed to empower your development as a critically questioning, reflective and proactive professional who has the ability and the desire to make positive social change. You want to work with children and young people and their families, and we want to support you in making a real difference and you will have many exciting opportunities on your personal and academic journey with us.

Our friendly team draws on a range of professional backgrounds and active research interests, and we want to share those with you and support you in your personal and academic development and in your professional practice.

Our most recent graduates had this to say about the Childhood and Youth BA (Hons):

  • “3 years have been very interesting and enjoyable. Not only has it enabled me to develop my academic knowledge it has enabled me to develop as an individual.”
  • “From the moment I have entered the University world, I feel I have been included, supported and appreciated all the way throughout my learning in all those 3 years. I am proud of what I have accomplished studying this course and how all staff from my University showed interest in every little detail I have asked help for.”
  • “I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and felt supported by my tutors throughout. I would recommend this course for anybody interested in working with children and young people.”

We are looking forward to meeting you on Monday 26 September!

In the meantime, remember you can find a full breakdown of all the modules on the course on the course webpage. You may also be interested in our Childhood and Youth blog.
