How you learn

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

Our staff are qualified and experienced social workers. We also invite practitioners, service users and other professionals to discuss issues that are relevant to the profession of social work. You will be allocated a personal tutor to assist with your learning and academic progress.

Uniquely you will learn with, from and about students studying on other courses.

This intellectually rewarding course allows you to engage with the world beyond the University. You'll apply research-based knowledge to make a positive impact on the real world of social care — including service users, future employers and other health and social care practitioners.
