You will study the ethics and values of social work, critical practice relating to the law around child and adult care, and the key theories and perspectives underpinning social work policy and practice.

As a Social Work student, you will spend half of your time on placement with social work agencies, learning through observation and practice, and the other half being taught on our Singleton Park campus.
