MA/PGDip in Social Work
We are offering two social work qualifications - an MA and a PGDip - for applicants who hold a relevant degree and experience of paid or voluntary work with vulnerable people within the UK.
The Social Work MA is a two-year full-time course (maximum 5 years on a part-time basis) while the PGDip can typically be gained in 18 months.
Graduates completing the MA or PGDip are eligible for registration as a qualified social worker with the social work regulatory body, the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
The core modules are:
Skill Development and Professional Communication
The Policy and Law Context of Social Care
Applied Research Methods
Social Work Practice 1
Social Work Theory, Assessment and Evidence-Informed Intervention with Adults
Supporting Children and Families: Building the Evidence
Social Work Practice 2
Social Work Theory, Assessment and Evidence-Informed Intervention with Children and Families
In addition, MA students will be required to undertake the Dissertation module.
Our modules are assessed in a variety of ways, including written assignments, class tests, portfolios, presentations and a dissertation.
Both awards require two practice placements, which will include attendance throughout the summer months.
