Course content

Research profile

Our social work researchers have excellent links with professional and social work services in statutory and voluntary sectors.

The research interests of staff cover the full range of applied service specialisms and theoretical issues in social work. In Scotland this includes criminal justice as well as children and families, vulnerable adults and community care. International and European perspectives are also part of academic staff interests.

Our work is enriched by the perspective of both international students and UK/EU students who are experienced professionals studying part-time while working.

Training and support

Together with students in all disciplines across the School, you will undertake research methods courses in first year (and second year if part time) before proceeding with your thesis. Each student has two supervisors with the possibility of the second supervisor coming from an outside discipline.

There are regular group meetings, especially in year one, between staff and students.
