You could work with children, young people, parents, people with mental health problems, people with physical disabilities or learning disabilities, older people, and with relatives and friends who care for them. At UEA, we see social work as a practical and ethical profession that helps people and makes a difference to their lives.Our social work training is among the most highly regarded in the country. You’ll graduate ready to start your social work career. In time, you could become a leader in the field as an innovator, practice leader, senior manager, policy maker, researcher or lecturer.**Overview**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 (now replaced by Social Work England), 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 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'll 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.
