Course content

This programme allows you to build upon academic and occupational experience and achieve a professional qualification in social work. You will benefit from strong tutorial support, teaching informed by research and practice, and access to a range of placement opportunities in specialist fields.

Overview

This is a two-year full-time programme leading to an MA and a professional qualification in social work.

Situated within the broader environment of social sciences, this programme provides a theoretical and critical approach to the acquisition and appreciation of knowledge about social work practice and its context. Principles of human rights are core.

Distinctive features

  • Our teaching staff have current practice and research backgrounds that keep them up to date with developments in the field.
  • A range of placement opportunities in specialist fields are provided.
  • Bursaries may be available from the Care Council for Wales (or other UK equivalent councils).
  • The programme continues to meet the Care Council for Wales’ requirements with no conditions according to yearly reviews.
  • There are opportunities to take part in student exchange (ERASMUS) and carry out some study abroad (currently Finland, Lithuania, Austria or Germany).
  • Users of social services are central to the management and delivery of the Programme.

Learning and assessment

How will I be taught?

Teaching is offered in a range of ways: lectures, seminars, group work, self-directed study, role plays and in practice settings.

You will be expected to attend all timetabled sessions and are also expected to engage in independent study. You will receive supervision to help you complete the dissertation, but you will be expected to manage your own time to undertake significant independent study during this phase.

You are expected to adhere to the Cardiff University policy on Dignity at Work and Study and to the Care Council for Wales Code of Professional Practice.

How will I be supported?

Support materials will be provided via Learning Central (Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment) or from study packs specially developed for selected modules.

You will be allocated a personal tutor. Additional support and advice is available where necessary from our Senior Personal Tutor for Postgraduate Taught Students.

Career prospects

Your professional development will be strengthened through strong tutorial support, a research-led teaching environment and access to a range of placement opportunities in specialist fields.

On successful completion of the course you qualify as a social worker and will be able to assume the title of Registered Social Worker. This enables you to become employed in a range of social work settings. We have a high employment rate for our students.
