BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies Graduate, Kate O'Brien, speaks about the friendly atmosphere around campus and the support from lecturers

"Bundles of opporunities follow Early Childhood Studies at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).  The course is quite broad and there are so many career paths to choose from.

There is a wide range of subjects including personal and professional development and practice placements in both 2nd and 3rd year which are extremely helpful in deciding the area you want to work in. 

There is a friendly atmosphere around campus, the lecturers do all they can to support each student and are willing to meet you personally for anything you need help with.

I would recommend Early Childhood Studies to anyone interested in working in the early years' education or care."
