Social Work Research

Social work, both in the UK and internationally, has been defined as a profession that 'promotes social change, problem solving in human relationships and the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance social justice.' Accordingly, social work takes a variety of forms and engages with a broad range of individuals, groups and communities. The scope of social work research is equally broad and requires researchers to be aware of, and able to engage with a variety of disciplines in a range of settings, often working alongside those with different ideas of what social work and social work research are and what each is intended to achieve.

Entry requirements
