I find the course fascinating and love how passionate and enthusiastic the lecturers are. They inspire me to work harder so I can achieve the things I want to do after completing my degree

I chose to study the Early Childhood Studies course because I realised that I needed to gain qualifications in this area in order to pursue a career in working with children. I also wanted to come and experience life at university.

The course at Brookes looked really good on the website and is great within the classroom. I find the course fascinating and love how passionate and enthusiastic the lecturers are. They inspire me to work harder so I can achieve the things I want to do after completing my degree. The location of the university also made me want to study at Brookes over other universities.

The course has helped me strengthen many of my skills such as communication and academic writing, these will assist me in many areas of life. If any support or guidance is needed with work or any part of student life there is always someone on hand to help, be it a lecturer, the Student Help Zone, support groups or elected student reps.

When I finish my degree I would like to undertake postgraduate study and specialise in a certain area of the Early Years field.
