Eva Mikuska

Senior Lecturer

E.Mikuska@chi.ac.uk | 01243 816336

At the beginning of the Yugoslavian war, I came to live in the UK in 1992. After working in various early years settings for more than a decade, I have joined University of Chichester in 2010. I am currently leading the Foundation Degree in Early Years programme where my aim is to continue to support students in their chosen careers not only with my wide experience in the field, but through my research which primarily focuses on all aspects of adult education.

Currently, I am studying EdD at the Institute for Policy Studies in Education in London, so my ‘hobby’ is deconstructing early years policies.
