Make a difference in people's lives

If you have a passion for helping people in the community, our programmes will equip you with the tools and research-informed knowledge you'll need for a rewarding career.

Our Social Work degree is approved by Social Work England, and as a graduate you are eligible for registration with Social Work England as a qualified Social Worker. The programme has been developed in close collaboration with partner social work agencies and is led by experienced practitioners and academics.
