Course summary

We need students who want to make a difference to society, help people find solutions to their problems and live more successfully. Our BA Social Work Programme team are committed to supporting you to become a reflective social work practitioner. We work collaboratively and in partnership with practitioners and people who use services to ensure that social work students are provided with the skills and readiness needed for a rewarding, successful and long-term career in social work; and that our social workers are developed and challenged in their career. Our teaching partnership supports a range of placements in both the Adults and Children and Families sectors: these placements are an integral part of your education so you can become the best social worker you can be. On the programme you will be able to learn through innovative methods such as engaging in a simulated experience of being in court and making home visits in our purpose-built campus facilities. We have a specialist module that prepares you for the realities of working within the digital social work world including an awareness of the benefits and the associated ethical dilemmas. You’ll also recognise the importance of applying diversity and anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive principles in practice.

Assessment method

We use a range of assessment methods, including essays, posters, practical skills, examinations and multiple-choice questions. You’ll need to demonstrate the knowledge and application of standard concepts, information and techniques, as well as your emerging abilities, skills and competencies. You’ll need to produce work that is typically both evaluative and creative and show you can conduct independent, in-depth enquiry within the discipline.
