Part-time degree in Community Development - Extended deadline!

Ulster University

Ulster University

Cost: Cost per year is currently £1405.80 (subject to change).
Due to COVID19, we have extended the application deadline to Friday 29th May! If you are working or volunteering in the community or voluntary sector and would like an opportunity to gain a professionally recognised degree in Community Development, apply now!

No prior qualifications required! If you have current experience in the community/voluntary sector (equating to approx. 1 day per week) and can demonstrate a reasonable grasp of English language, you can apply directly to the BSc Hons Community Development. The degree starts in mid-September and runs over one day per week, 9:30am - 4pm Wednesday, until early May. It normally takes four years to complete the degree but exit points are available after one, two and three years (e.g. Certificate, Diploma, Associate Bachelor Degree). You will normally attend university approximately 27 days per year. Please note if you are not currently working in a community development setting, you will be required to supply a letter from a community/volunteering organisation confirming that you are volunteering one day (approx 8 hrs) per week.

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.
