Thanks to our practice placements, you’ll clock up hundreds of hours in a professional setting. So you’ll have the real-world knowhow to back up the theory.
As well as social work, you could pursue a range of other careers and roles. You can apply your skills to fields such as policing and charity work. Or to alternative careers with a people-focus, such as counselling.
Our students go on to work as social workers, mental health practitioners, drug and alcohol specialists, and community workers. As well as welfare rights advisers, youth justice officers, and housing officers. Some graduates even go on to set up their own social enterprises to help meet the needs of their local communities.
