Explore the integrated degree and diploma modules you’ll study

The degree and diploma modules are fully integrated to enable you to apply theory to practice. Each of the three years at Norland is divided into three trimesters with your time split between placement and study.

In your third and final year at Norland you’ll also be required to complete a dissertation on an early years topic of your choice. During the summer trimester of the third year, we focus on teaching you skills which will be relevant to your future employment. 

The final module of the Diploma is the Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) year, a 12-month probationary nanny post in paid full-time employment.
