Social workers are capable of so much and helping so many. Their work touches upon areas ranging from child protection to fostering and adoption, through to youth justice and supporting adults with disabilities, to mental health and homelessness, and helping those with drug issues or alcohol dependency.
Our course is endorsed by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), which means you’ll be able to register as a qualified social worker the minute you graduate, explaining why 95% of our students are working or studying within six months of graduating.
This practical degree, which is one of the top ten of its kind according to the 2018 Guardian League tables, blends a powerful combination of academic study with essential practical experience.
As a result, you’ll leave us fully equipped with the specialist knowledge and practical skills needed to deal with a broad range of issues surrounding social welfare, social exclusion and discrimination, law and social policy, working with children, young people and adults, mental health and substance abuse.
You’ll gain lots of hands-on experience during your placements, operating in real-world settings. What’s more, you can even seize the opportunity to travel and complete your placements overseas.
