We offer our course, BA (Hons) Childhood, Family Studies and Education Studies PART-TIME which includes day time sessions. However if you would like to study more flexibly, for example of an evening, we offer part time Foundation Degrees in Early Years Services at our college partners. After completing your part time Foundation degree you can then top up to a final year of a part- time BA degree course in order to gain a full honours degree.
