Working with communities, young people can be challenging and yet extremely rewarding. At the University of Bolton our early years, community and youth-focussed degrees reflect the diversity of the sector and offer a solid foundation for your professional development. The teaching mirrors the subjects you’ll be taught and your involvement is an important part of the experience.

We are one of the first universities in the North West of England to offer these Degree Programmes as a single course with two different routes (see previous page for links). Both routes will equip you with the knowledge skills and attitudes to help you to explore the fascinating world of working with people. Both routes will provide you with excellent academic teaching and practical experience that will hopefully lead to either a dual professionally validated Degree or a Degree without the professional recognition. The key difference is the amount of field work practice you undertake. 

Book onto the next open day

Don't just take our word for it, the best way to find out about a University is to have a look for yourself. We Offer Campus Tours, Halls of Residence Tours and have subject lecturers on hand throughout the day to answer your questions.
