The MSc in Advanced Practice offers post-qualifying education to individuals working in social care or health services. The course provides professionally and academically rigorous postgraduate Social Work training that enables you to critically evaluate theory and utilise research findings in relation to advanced practice and leadership. We recognise the time pressures that affect social workers and allied professions so this course is delivered via a part-time, modular format, offering flexibility to suit your needs – allowing you to continue to work while learning. You are able to exit at different stages throughout of the course, tailoring the qualification to your own professional need and commitments, gaining a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in Advanced Practice.
There are four optional pathways through the course, allowing you to specialise in an area of your own experience or interests: Children & Families; Adults; Leadership & Management; Professional Education. Royal Holloway is the largest provider of Continuing Professional Development in Social Work in South East England. Academics in the Department of Social Work undertake commissioned work in a wide variety of areas, underpinning our taught courses with the latest research. We are dedicated to supporting learners to become research-literate practitioners and policy/practice literate researchers – breaking down the barriers between research and practice.
