Studying Education and Early Childhood Studies

What to look forward to

Combine your studies with opportunities to learn in the field with trips to galleries, museums, places of worship, and more.

We also have excellent relationships with local schools and childcare settings or nurseries which can lead to exciting placement opportunities in your final years of study.

  • Prepare for a variety of careers and opportunities

    Studying Education or Early Childhood Studies at MDX will set you up to work in a variety of industries and settings. Whether you want to pursue practical teaching or an administrative role, our staff are here to help tailor your degree to your career ambitions.

    We blend theoretical and practical teaching methods to ensure you get the most out of each and every class. This includes field trips, group projects, and presentations – all of which will help you gain the skills you need to succeed in your career.

    Combined with our theory-based work, you will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding to tackle any problem you might face in your future role, from managing equality, diversity and inclusion to developing and analysing curriculums.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:

    You’ll be on campus for seminar group work and skills training in small groups which will provide a safe space for you to work with fellow students and tutors.

    You’ll be taught online through both live lectures where you can ask questions of tutors and lecturers or through pre-recorded lectures that you can watch at your own time.

Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

Our teaching and learning approach is evidence-based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

We also use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control, like using polls, virtual whiteboards, and quizzes during lectures so you can interact live.

Build specialist skills through placement opportunities

You’ll get to put the theory you learn in class to the test in optional placement opportunities on any of our courses.

We’ll support you through personalised tutoring sessions to explore the right placement for you, placement planning packs to organise and prepare, or through dedicated modules on preparing your digital portfolio for work after graduation.

We also know that a lot of our students choose to work during term time to gain extra work experience, which is why we have designed these programmes with that in mind. You’ll study four days a week, leaving a day where you can seek out part-time work in your industry of choice.

We’ll also support you in getting your appropriate DBS checks, whether for part-time work or placement.

Learn from highly experienced tutors

Our academic staff are a mix of highly respected researchers, experienced teachers and industry professionals. Whatever career path you choose to take, you’ll learn from the absolute best in the area who continue to bring their unique expertise to the classroom.

You’ll see this expertise come to life in optional and core modules throughout your three years. Whether that’s studying how social context shifts our ways of teaching or the importance of play in early development, you’ll come out of your degree with the specialist knowledge you need.

We also have experts in mental health, special education, and diversity and inclusion to ensure you have the knowledge you need to work in a diverse environment.

From our mixed teaching methods and our robust placement programme to our respected academic staff, we know that studying education and early childhood studies at Middlesex University will prepare you for a successful career. No matter your specialism of interest or career goals, we are here to help you along your journey and ensure you are equipped to practice in an ever-changing world.
