Bachelor of Education - The Early Years (Honours) (080835E) at University of Wollongong: Tuition: $27,648.00 AUD/year (Scholarship Available)

The Honours program is an alternative option for students wishing to undertake research during the fourth year of either the Bachelor of Education - The Early Years pass degree or the Bachelor of Education - The Early Years (Dean's Scholar) degree. Entry to the honours year is based on application and merit.

Early Years education enriches learning in children from birth to five years by giving children the opportunity to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for lifelong learning. It focuses on the significance of early education to foster children’s health, development and wellbeing.

For the duration of this four-year degree Early Years students will engage in continuous professional mentoring through the Professional Partners in Practice (PPP) program. This will give students invaluable sector experience and professional connections that will enhance their employment pathways and opportunities.

Throughout the degree students spend up to 16 weeks teaching in Early Childhood Education and Care Centres and two weeks in the Community and Family sector, complementary to the mentoring experience within the Professional Partners in Practice program.

Students will also have the opportunity to undertake exchange, study abroad and international cultural immersion programs.

Working closely with two supervisors, students will undertake a major project during the program, students will undertake special experiences for research work either in the field or that examine other aspects of education. The degree will culminate in the production of a thesis or other project work that disseminates their research findings and the results from their project and research inquiry.
