Course summary

About our programmes

With its diverse range of environments, experiences and social conditions, the city of Hull and its surrounds make it an area rich with opportunities for research in social work.

Social work at the University of Hull has a long tradition of making a tangible difference to the lives of others, with recent research centring on issues surrounding safeguarding and suicide-prevention in the internet age, kinship care, child protection and missing children, among other themes.

Our hand-selected postgraduate students share our passion and drive to make a difference. We have established strong working relationships with local social services providers, users, and carers.

The PhD in Social Work allows you to research and write a dissertation of 70,000 to 100,000 words on a topic chosen in conjunction with your supervisor.
