Course content

The MA in Social Work delivers a professional qualification combined with an academic award. Successful completion of the course means individuals are eligible to apply to join the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) register which is a requirement in order to practice as a social worker in the UK.

This course is approved by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

The course dynamically integrates theory and practice embracing both learning in the classroom and in placement settings. The course provides a generic learning opportunity encompassing all service user groups and every effort is made to involve service users, carers, practitioners and managers from across the social work arena in the learning experience.

While the course works to the UK points of reference including the QAA benchmarks the requirements of the HCPC, the course team also embrace the International Federation of Social Work’s definition:

“The social work profession promotes social change, problem solving in human relationships and the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance well-being. Utilising theories of human behaviour and social systems, social work intervenes at the points where people interact with their environments. Principles of human rights and social justice are fundamental to social work.”

Links are developing with social work courses at universities in Russia and there may be opportunities for exchange visits as well as sharing with students from a number of countries attending the annual summer school at the university.
