EARLY CHILDHOOD

The undergraduate programme in Early Childhood Studies provides a higher level of academic study that will extend your knowledge and understanding of children in their early years. We hope to ignite your curiosity as we explore young children’s development and interaction with the world and that in understanding the inequalities that children face locally and globally, you will grow as advocates for young children’s needs and rights.

The Early Childhood team aim to provide a stimulating and supportive learning environment for all our students through a high level of tutor support, access to exceptional University resources and engagement with our multidisciplinary teaching team with wide experience in research, practice and policy in the field. Together with the vital ingredient of your commitment as a student, these elements will enrich your learning experience. We also aim to enhance this where possible through engaging invited speakers and field visits to relevant spaces in Liverpool, a city rich in community connection and cultural experience.

The degree is taught by academics from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Sociology, Education, Philosophy and Psychology. The teaching team are all actively involved in research and have published in their specialist fields. They are all members of the thriving Liverpool Hope Childhood Research Forum and contribute to a range of research conferences both nationally and internationally. This experience provides an informed and supportive learning environment for the student characterised by depth and challenge.

For Single Honours students there is a compulsory placement as part of your degree. The placement will enable you to enhance your understanding of key themes and provides you with an insight into the professional context. For Combined Honours students the placement is optional. The Single Honours programme also offers the option to obtain separate professional certification as a graduate practitioner through assessment against the Early Childhood Graduate Practitioner Competencies.

TOURISM

Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries and has become one of its biggest sources of employment. Our Tourism degree looks at tourism from both management and academic perspectives. It looks at issues such as the structure of the tourism industry; impacts of tourism on people and the environment; the emergence of new forms of tourism to rival the package holiday; tourism destination management and global tourism development.

We pay close attention to enhancing your student experience and facilitating effective student learning. You will be taught by a team of tutors with a wide range of practical and academic experience of Tourism. Tutors take pride in being available to students and offering a high level of support. Our degree curriculum embeds material which aims to not only provide an in-depth, up-to-date knowledge on tourism, but also to refine critical thinking and develop your key transferable skills. We work closely with local tourism stakeholders to ensure the Tourism degree benefits local societies.

There is no better city in which to study Tourism than Liverpool. Liverpool is an ideal place to study tourism as the city and the wider region host a number of the key tourist attractions in the UK. The legacy of Capital of Culture sees Liverpool’s continuing development of new arts, heritage, and cultural attractions, retail developments and luxury hotels. As a result, there is a need for highly qualified graduates in Tourism.

A Placement Year option is available for this course. Undertaking a placement year as part of your degree programme offers you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience alongside your studies.
