Our facilities

Over the past few years, we’ve redeveloped both of our campuses so that you have the best facilities available for your degree. We pride ourselves on the quality of the learning environment we can offer our students.

At Bognor Regis campus there is an integrated approach to the provision of learning resources and support.  We offer a substantial collection of books, journals and other materials to help you further your research.

A range of study areas for group and quiet study including Wi-Fi areas for laptop use are available, or you can use our open access PC and Mac areas.  We use an electronic learning environment with an expanding portfolio of online library resources from anywhere at any time.

Our award winning Learning Resource Centre is at the heart of the campus.  It hosts a modern library service with areas for quiet and silent study on both floors. 

Also situated in the LRC is the Support and Information Zone, Costa Coffee and over 80 open access work stations.  An equipment loans centre offers laptops, tablets and other electronic devices for short and long term loans.

Where this can take you

Join us in making a real difference and spark a love of learning which carries children through formal schooling and into their later lives.  Varied teaching and learning approaches, integrated with  creative assessments, provide students with an engaging and relevant programme that facilitates progression into a career working with children and young people in a variety of different roles.

Indicative modules

The curriculum includes: creating inclusive learning opportunities, understanding difference and the need for differentiation in learning environments and developing positive partnerships with parents and other agencies.  In addition to these theoretical aspects we will provide opportunities to develop your skills in applied settings guided by experienced professionals.

Teaching and assessment

The teaching and learning strategies employed by the Programme are designed to enable you to effectively master a broad base of concepts, skills, knowledge, understanding and practice.  You will be challenged to go further than tackling immediate issues.  You will be given opportunities to apply your knowledge flexibly and appropriately in a variety of contexts.  Emphasis will continually be on you asking questions, generating hypotheses, and providing explanations that are indicative of undergraduate scholarship.  We expect you to be proactive, responsive, and responsible for your own learning.

Modules are the basic unit of the curriculum. The structure of the Programme is designed in accordance with the University modular scheme framework, whereby a single module is worth 15 credits with normally 30 hours of contact time and a further 120 hours of independent study. 

You will need to gain 120 credits at each level in order to progress to the next level. It follows, therefore, that you need 360 credits to graduate.

The taught modules are structured to allow for lectures, workshops, practical sessions, outdoor learning experiences, field trips, case studies, whole group and sub-group activities, as appropriate for the study of each module theme.  You will work with an innovative tutor team and engage in learning in many different ways.

Different types of assessment modes are employed across modules to enable you to provide evidence of a range of knowledge, skills, and understanding and competences developed by the Programme.  These assessment methods include essays, presentations, examinations, lesson plans, academic posters, curriculum packs, lesson commentaries, an independent project and practical application in a workplace setting.

Assessment procedures ensure that you gain a precise indication of your progress through the Programme, which in turn empowers you to take responsibility for your learning.  The Programme is designed to ensure that the various components of the Programme are planned so that you experience a range of assessment tasks, and that the scheduling of your assessments is balanced.
