Professional Studies in Children’s Play postgraduate programme

There is still time to apply for a September start on our Postgraduate Professional Studies in Children’s Play. Our courses at the University of Gloucestershire, UK, are delivered part time by distance learning and you can study with us from anywhere in the world. You can study just one module, or a PGCert, PGDip or full MA.

If you are working in the field of children’s play, our programme can help you articulate the unique nature of children’s play and its relevance to the current social policy agenda. Our MA in Professional Studies in Children’s Play is an academic programme that has been developed in conjunction with practitioners and professionals from a range of sectors. The programme aims to meet the needs of professionals including playworkers, early years’ workers, educators, landscape designers, planners, environmental educators, health professionals and animateurs in a variety of contexts – museums, zoos, tourism, public space.
