About the course
The BA in Social Work enables you to develop a sound grounding in social work skills, knowledge and values and we are committed to training you to the highest intellectual and professional standards. This innovative and challenging three-year programme has been validated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council). Those who successfully complete the programme will be eligible to apply to register as a qualified social worker with the HCPC.
The programme enjoys strong relationships with service users and carers and a range of statutory and voluntary agencies. You will experience high-quality placements which offer excellent learning opportunities and support in practice. You will also have the unique opportunity to apply for a placement in the University’s own voluntary social work agency, the Family Assessment and Support Unit (FASU), which was awarded one of the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education for its innovations in practice learning.
* What does ‘final validation pending’ mean?
We regularly review our courses to make sure they continue to meet our academic standards. Any changes to courses go through a re-validation process. ‘Final validation pending’ means that we intend to offer this programme, but it hasn’t received final University approval yet. Please call our Admissions Service on 01482 466100 for confirmation that the course is approved and will be running.
