We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This is a professional social work qualification, combining academic and practice-based learning. It will enable you to apply for registration as a qualified social worker with the relevant regulatory body for your nation. The subject matter is interdisciplinary, derived from psychology, sociology, social policy, law and social work studies. You may claim the diploma as a discrete qualification, or as an embedded award within the MA in Social Work.

Applicants will be required to have an honours degree with a minimum 2:2 classification in any discipline together with a proven record of experience of engaging directly with Service Users in a professional setting. Candidates’ experience will be considered individually on application but we would normally expect a minimum of one year's experience – in a setting such as a local authority or a health or social care provider in the private, voluntary or independent sector.
Applicants who do not meet the work experience requirement but hold a 2:1 classification in a cognate discipline will also be considered.
