Course Introduction

Social work is a profession that has its history rooted in the principles of equality and social justice. Accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council, this demanding course enables you to practice as a social worker. You'll benefit from our extensive links with statutory organisations, local authorities and the voluntary sector and from the experience our lecturers bring to their teaching. Staff are actively engaged with collaborative research across the EU and internationally. Students on the course are provided with the most up'to'date, relevant and focused curriculum to ensure that they emerge as reflective practitioners able to deal with the very significant challenges and responsibilities associated with the role of a social worker. Added value: The Presidency of the European Association of Social Workers is presently held by a member of the social work team.
