BSc Hons Community Development Information Session
Ulster University offer a part-time BSc Hons in Community Development. If you have experience working or volunteering in the community/voluntary sector, you do not need any A level qualifications to gain entry to the degree. This four year course offers a number of exit points, so that you can leave in year 1, 2, or 3 with a lower award (Certificate, Cert. HE, Associate Bachelors degree).
The course examines current issues facing marginalised and disadvantaged communities and explores how community development can be used to challenge inequality and social injustice, in order to help transform communities. You will also gain skills in working with people, managing community projects, writing funding applications, delivering informal education, conflict resolution and peace-building. This programme is professionally endorsed by the Endorsement Standards Board (UK) and All-Ireland Endorsement Board.
Students normally study one day per week on the Jordanstown* campus, although due to Covid-19 restrictions, the course is currently being offered fully online. There are normally 27 study days per year. Due to ongoing potential for these restrictions to continue, some or all of your learning may be carried out remotely. You will need to be able to access the internet and have some familiarity with technology. Teaching staff will provide online teaching and support where face-face teaching is not possible. The University has excellent student support systems in place, to help students new to an online teaching environment.
