Why Study BA Honours Early Childhood Studies?
Many employers are increasingly expecting higher education to ensure that students graduate not only with a qualification, but also a broad understanding of the social issues in the real world, a well-developed battery of personal transferable skills (including communication, problem-solving and teamwork) and a coherent sense of personal values to which they are committed. The Early Childhood Studies programme is designed to meet these goals.
This is achieved, in the first place, by ensuring that your learning process is not based on passive assimilation of knowledge but is one where you participate actively in interpretation, evaluation and application of knowledge. Secondly, in addition to the knowledge component, Early Childhood Studies encourages you to identify and articulate your personal competencies and creates opportunities for your further development.
The Early Childhood Studies (Hons) programme from Middlesex University Dubai also maintains effective working links with the Careers and Employability Service, who if you need assistance with finding internships and work placements during this programme and in the future, will happily oblige. Early Years is a growth area within the region and demand for highly skilled, competent practitioners is on the increase.

“I studied BA Honours International Tourism Management at Middlesex University Dubai. The application process was made easy by the University’s friendly Admissions Department, who responded to my application immediately and coached me throughout the process. As a Nigerian student, I chose to study in Dubai because it is a city filled with incredible opportunities, and at the University I have had the chance to meet people from many different countries. As well as making friends from around the world, my lecturers have always been friendly and supportive. Before joining the BA programme, I studied the International Foundation Programme (IFP) at Middlesex University Dubai which prepared me for Undergraduate study.”
