The Course

Summary

Social work is ideally suited to intelligent, compassionate, hard-working and caring students. At UEA we have an international reputation for the excellence of our social work teaching and research. We are fully accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council, and your Social Work degree will support you to develop the academic knowledge and professional skills you’ll need to register as a qualified social worker. We are part of a government-funded Social Work Teaching Partnership with Suffolk and Norfolk County Councils and the University of Suffolk, ensuring that you’ll benefit from close links between teaching, research and practice now and in your future career. Our graduates are highly regarded by local employers and many of our students begin their careers with UEA partners thanks to links established while on student placements. When applying for this course, remember that your interpersonal skills are as important as your educational background. Your application should reflect your potential in both areas. That means we want to hear about your experience of working with people. You might have done voluntary or paid work in a school, residential home or in home care. Or you may have done other work with children, families or vulnerable adults who need extra care or support. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, including people who’ve just left school or college, and mature students. Due to the nature of the course, you will need to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service screening. You will also need to provide two references: one regarding your academic achievements, and the second telling us about your experience in work or helping people. You must also inform us about any major health concerns that could affect your studies. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
