Social Work

This programme offers you a professional qualification recognised by the Scottish Social Services Council and the General Social Care Council, and eligibility for registration as a social worker. You'll gain a fundamental understanding of the theory and practice that underpins all work in the field, splitting your time between theoretical learning on campus and practical work in various learning environments. The programme is approved by the Scottish Social Services Council, complies with the Scottish Requirements for Social Work Training and enables you to meet the Standards in Social Work Education and the Key Capabilities in Child Care and Protection. It is also recognised as a professional qualification in social work across the world, including the United States and Canada. All applications must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Services (UCAS). Please note that although this is a postgraduate programme, applications are submitted via the UCAS undergraduate system rather than through UKPASS. The course code is L508. Application forms are issued every year from mid September for entry in September of the following year. Completed applications from home/EU candidates should be submitted to UCAS by 31 March. Completed applications from international/overseas students are accepted until 15 July each year.
