Social workers are part of solutions who can meet a challenge and function in crisis situations.

Our Master's degree will train you to be a resilient and resourceful social worker. You will learn how to advise and support people at times of difficulty and deal with a wide range of problems.

Our students benefit from a variety of inspiring and motivating learning activities that are led by academics, expert practitioners and service users. This involves opportunities for collaborative learning with students from other health and social care disciplines.

Successful completion of this approved programme leads to eligibility to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).


We have strong partnerships with local employers to ensure high quality practice placements and potential job opportunities. 

Teaching and learning methods

We utilise innovative assessment techniques designed to get the best out of you, such as the use of drama, role play and online study tools, providing you with a valuable student experience.

Our programme incorporates vibrant activities that prepare you for professional social work practice and readiness to engage and work with service users and practitioners.

Highlights of our programme

By the end of your MA degree, you will have a vision towards the Assessed and Supported Year in Practice and will be thinking about continuing professional development (CPD) and contributing to research. You will also have developed relevant skills in line with Knowledge and Skills Statements for either Adults or Children and Families Social Work.

We offer opportunities for continued professional development through the accreditation of Practice Educators and provision of workshops on the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) and advancing practice learning for Practice Educators.

Just some of the highlights of our programme include our 'Communication Skills Week' and a 'Partnership Event'.


Our programme is informed by staff who are active researchers in the field of social work. You will be encouraged to publish your work in order to contribute to social work research and knowledge. This will form a basis for your continuing professional development.
