Course summary

Few careers offer as much opportunity to support people as social work. Often, inequalities and injustices in society create difficulties for people involved with social services. The social work profession acknowledges these difficulties and endeavours to support people to manage their situations and effect positive change.This social work degree is based on the All Wales Assessment Framework for Social Work, which includes the National Occupational Standards for Social Work, and the Social Care Wales Code of Professional Practice for Social Care Workers. This means you will graduate with the professional qualification required to register as a social worker. If you apply through UCAS, you may be eligible for a bursary from Social Care Wales (subject to their conditions).The social work course consists of academic and practice-based elements. Half your time will involve practice learning opportunities in statutory, voluntary and third sectors. This will help consolidate your knowledge and skills, and prepare you for practice.Practical placements account for 50% of our social work degree, each in a different setting. This means you’ll not only be well prepared when you qualify, but you’ll also have a good idea of the sector in which you would like to work. These block placements can often lead to employment opportunities when you graduate.You can specialise in a particular area in the third year, for example working with adults, children or in mental health. You’ll also be prepared to work in integrated multiagency teams alongside professionals from other services such as the police, health and education.The social work degree is based in our Newport City campus. Right at the heart of the city, overlooking the River Usk, it is one of the University’s most iconic buildings and easily accessible by train, bus or car. USW Newport is home to a wide range of subject areas, so you’ll benefit from studying in a diverse atmosphere.
