Social Work (Professional Qualification Route) - MSc


Course Description

Our MSc Social Work is an integrated two-year, full-time programme which provides graduates with the opportunity to qualify as a registered social worker as well as gain a Masters degree.

Through a combination of academic and practice-based modules, the programme teaches the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an effective and research-minded practitioner, able to act effectively within the complex demands of social work practice. The programme develops your skills in the social work field through support from a professionally qualified and committed staff team.

As the programme provides an accelerated route to qualification over two years, the programme is both intensive and challenging. It is therefore essential that you have a combination of academic and practice experience that will enable you to study effectively at Masters level. The programme is accredited by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and all students must be registered with the SSSC.

Graduates can expect to work in a range of settings across the statutory and voluntary sectors. Opportunities exist to work with adults and children in social work teams and specialist settings.

There are two supervised practice placements, 70 days in year 1 and 100 days in year 2. Placements are made available in a diverse range of practice settings across the west of Scotland.

Employment Opportunities
