The Social Work Masters degree is a two-year full-time course which is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council. Therefore if you successfully complete it, you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.
We work closely with employers in the statutory and independent sectors to ensure our course content retains a focus on the people entitled to use the services. It also helps to ensure that you are ready for professional practice when you qualify.
What you’ll study
The MA Social Work is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and is designed to be a broad course providing you with the opportunity to specialise in Children and Family or Adult Social Work. It is suitable if you wish to practice under UK legislation.
During the course you will undertake one work placement per year, in which you will be supported by a qualified practice educator in order to help you get the most from your experience.
While there is no academic credit attached to the practice learning opportunities – you must pass the assessed written work for each at masters level and this will be graded by the academic team.
You’ll also study a range of taught modules.
Careers and employability
When you graduate you may be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and you will need to abide by a code of ethics and behaviour in relation to the profession.
On completion of the course you may choose to enter the profession by working in services for children or adults. Opportunities may also exist in social services departments, the private and independent sector, educational welfare, services such as guidance providing agencies, careers services and youth justice.
