MA in education (early years) modules

CREC offers a flexible way for trainees and Early Years practitioners to gain a Post Graduate Masters degree in Early Years Education.

All of our modules are designed specifically for Early Years practitioners and leaders in the Early Years. As such, they are offered as part-time courses which can be fitted around a busy, full-time working life.


Course Overview


Each course module can be taken in isolation but we encourage Early Years practitioners to see them as complementary components which can provide a pathway to gaining a postgraduate qualification in Early Years.

Each module takes one academic year to complete and you would need to complete three modules (including the dissertation module) in order to be awarded an MA in Education (Early Years).

All courses are delivered at our base at the St. Thomas Children's Centre in central Birmingham. Face-to-face attendance is required on every module, though this is usually only five to seven days per academic year.

This means that people living all over the UK and Ireland have been able to access our courses.
