The School of Social Work and Social Policy at the University of Strathclyde has just announced that it has five fully funded places available, to Scottish and EU applicants, for the MSc Child and Youth Care Studies by Distance Learning.
Taught completely online, this part-time course has been developed between the University and CELCIS and has a fresh, engaging curriculum that covers globalised childhoods, international policy contexts, bringing up children and research methods.
It is primarily aimed at students with an interest in developing positive strategies for affirming and developing the professional identity of child and youth care practice. It draws from a variety of disciplines and approaches including child and youth care, social pedagogy, sociology, psychology, health, education, social work and social policy.
The course starts on Monday 3 September 2018. Applicants need a first degree or relevant professional qualification, or a combination of qualifications and experience demonstrating capacity for postgraduate study. You will also require sufficient access to child care settings.
The five successful applicants who receive a bursary will have their tuition fees covered for the full duration of the programme (36 month). To be considered for a bursary, applicants must first apply for and be accepted onto the programme.
The closing date for applicants for bursary is Friday 22 June 2018.
Applicants who are accepted to the programme but unsuccessful in terms of the bursary would be required to pay the tuition fee if they wished to proceed with their studies.
