About the course:

Social workers form partnerships with people, helping them to assess and interpret the problems they face, and support them in finding solutions. This course will provide you with the skills and theories that will enable you to work as a qualified social worker in a range of settings. A career in social work is very challenging, but equally rewarding, as you get the opportunity to help make a difference to someone's life.

During this course you'll spend 170 days in work placements where you can apply the theory you learn into practice. You'll have 80 days in practice during stage one, and 90 days during stage two. We have great links with our partners in the local and surrounding areas so we can provide you with the effective and practical experience you'll need.

Internal applicants can apply directly to the University.
