Course summary

This course is designed for you if you want to be a social worker but have not met the entry requirement of a 2: 1 in your undergraduate degree. There is a significant shortage of qualified social workers across the country, and by joining the profession you will be assured of lifelong employment and rewarding and challenging work with people needing your help, often during their most vulnerable times. We recognise that just because you did not achieve a 2:1 does not mean you do not have the potential to become a superb social worker here at the University of Bedfordshire.

By undertaking this Post Graduate Certificate, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to study at the required level for your professional qualifying course, MSc Social Work. You will also achieve prior recognition of your learning (RPL) of 30 credits towards your post graduate qualification, making the opportunity more economically attractive.

Students who experience difficulties which affect their attendance must inform their personal tutor and will normally be advised to make an appointment with the University’s Student Engagement and Mitigation Team. Appointments can be made via the Student Information Desk (SID), either in person or online.
