child psychology


Year three


Childhood and youth inquiry three

optional unit ( i chose health)


Multiprofessional perspectives three


Im sure there are a few units i have missed off but im sure you get the general jist :o


Its a multiprofessional degree, which as you can see covers lots, up to age 18.

We had to do normally one essay (2,500 words) for each unit and used to do presentations for a few as well, some of these were individual and would be tape recorded, others were group work.

We had to carry out some small scale research projects which helped to prepare us if we were doing research for our dissertation.

there was two exams in the final year, and a class test in the second year.


I studied at crewe and Alsager, but i think the content of the degree is similar wherever you study.


hope this helps

Hi Jessica,

I have just begun my foundation degree in childhood and adolescent studies, which is a 2 yr course and then a 3rd year will be my BA.

I am a manager of a pre school and am level 3 and at the mo, lovin the course.


If you look through the forum index, u will find bits and pieces about degree's and other courses under training. If I knew how to do a link I would but unfortunately slightly pc illiterate. (I think thats how u spell it)
