Social work is all about people. It’s an extremely rewarding and challenging profession.
Our social work course does much more than ‘what it says on the tin’.
You’ll be an integral part of our Centre for Social Work and Social Justice which is underpinned by activism, internationalism and research. We’re proud to be champions of social justice and progression. If you’re hard working, adaptable, honest and, above all, passionate about finding long-term solutions and supporting positive changes for children, adults and families, then welcome home.
Thinking about a change of direction? Kick start your career as a Social Worker by studying for our MA Social Work. This two year course leads to eligibility to register with the HCPC as a registered Social Worker.
Already qualified as a Social Worker and looking to progress? Our MA Professional Practice could be an excellent option for you. This pathway allows you to handpick modules to suit your needs and interests.
Our Professional Doctorate courses lead to a specialist qualification that is appropriate if you are in, or aspiring to, a senior professional appointment in education or management in health or social care. We also offer PhD Social Work.
You may also be interested in our MA Professional Practice which includes advanced level analysis, professional or clinical reasoning around cases, therapeutic or other interventions and aspect or sequence of service delivery within the context of social work.

Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed on each course page show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
