Our top-up Early Childhood Studies Degree with Honours is for those interested in the development, care and education of young children. It is concerned with ideas and practices that are drawn from a range of disciplines, including history, psychology, philosophy, sociology, law and management, all of which contribute to the field of early years.

During the BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies you are introduced to the study of each of these distinctive disciplines within the context of examining early years services, policies and procedures.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
