At Norland, you’ll study two distinct qualifications

Our two fully integrated qualifications uniquely blend theory and practice. Our award-winning BA (Hons) in Early Years Development and Learning is a three-year full-time undergraduate degree course. You’ll be taught by lecturers with a passion for the early years and considerable professional and academic experience.

Running alongside the degree and for a fourth year following completion of the degree is the prestigious Norland diploma. This qualification will prepare you for all the practical aspects of the care and development of young children as well as critical professional and life skills. The final module of the diploma is the Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) year, a 12-month probationary nanny post in paid full-time employment that we find for you and support you throughout.
