The aim of our MA in Social Work is to provide students, who already hold a first degree, with a professional social work qualification at Master's level.
The course will enable you to be a confident, competent, qualified social work practitioner. We offer a well established course with a national reputation for producing high-calibre workers. Our course is designed, managed and delivered by a Programme Management Board that includes practice placement agencies, students, lecturers and practitioners. Stakeholder involvement ensures that our course maintains a dynamic, outward-looking approach towards social work education with a clear focus on the needs of service users.
The programme is built upon the following standards and requirements for social work training: the HCPC (Health and care Professions Council Standards of Proficiency for social care workers, the DOH (Department of Health) Requirements for social work training, The College of Social Work Professional Capabilities Framework and the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency) benchmark statements for social policy administration and social work.
On completion of the MA in Social Work you will have:
Modules: All Modules are Core (C)
Year 1 - Part 1 (60 Credits):
Year 1 - Part 2 (60 Credits):
Year 2 - Part 1 (20 Credits):
Year 2 - Part 2 (40 Credits):
IELTS at 7 or the equivalent
The MA in Social Work includes two assessed practice placements.
We offer an exciting programme of skills development sessions on top of your academic modules and practice placements. The main purpose is to prepare students for their first placement by providing structured opportunities to practice key generic skills and to increase their understanding of the social work role, without the immediate pressure of assessment, and without the need to be in a social worker role with service users and carers. We also provide opportunities later in the course to develop more advanced skills.
