Course summary

Overview

DMU has a 30-year history of delivering social work education at undergraduate level. This course, recently approved by the Health and Care Professions Council, uses this experience to offer social work qualification at postgraduate level with successful completion providing eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC.

The course is vocational and up to half of it is spent on placement in social work settings. The course aims to produce capable and competent students ready to enter the profession and make a difference to service users’ lives. The qualification is generic so you will be able to work across a range of adult and childcare settings in both the statutory and voluntary sector.

Benefit from a variety of teaching methods including formal lectures, student-led learning, problem-based learning, self-directed study and e-learning. Alongside this, the Social Work MA has 170 days of practice-based learning.

We have strong links with placement providers which produce high quality placements supervised by practice educators. Placements are normally within the Leicester City or Leicestershire geographical area and are full-time work-based learning commitments.

Key features

  • Develop your professional skills by transferring theory into practice in the 170 days on placement.
  • We have strong links with the local statutory and voluntary sector to ensure good quality and supportive placement experiences.
  • The course has been developed to provide the academic teaching before placements to ensure that you feel equipped for practice learning.
  • You will be taught by experienced social work practitioners and researchers, ensuring a rich learning experience.
  • Service users, carers and current social work practitioners are directly involved in our teaching.
  • Benefit from a 30-year history of delivering social work education at DMU.
  • Study a range of modules including Children and Families Social Work, Human Growth and Development, Social Work with Adults, and Social Work Theories and Methods.
