Description

Accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council, this degree offers an academic and professional qualification that will enable you to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council to register as a professional Social Worker.


Students of this degree will understand the theoretical foundations of social work, rooted in psychology and sociology. They will explore social policy and legal context, including statutory provisions regarding child care, mental health and adult care. There is also a consistent focus on working with individuals, families, groups, fellow social workers and other professionals.


Placement-based learning is central to this degree, with placements carried out with at least two different service user groups, with personal tutors actively encouraging your progress and a practice educator who will guide and assess your practice.

Scholarships and Funding
Students undertaking Social Work programmes may also be eligible to receive a Department of Health Postgraduate Bursary administered by the NHS Business Services Authority. The Postgraduate Bursary is available to students ordinarily resident in England studying on an approved full-time postgraduate course. The Bursary consists of a non-income-assessed basic grant that varies in value, a contribution towards expenses related to practice learning opportunities (placements) and a contribution towards tuition fees. It also includes an income-assessed maintenance grant that varies in value and income-assessed allowances of various values to assist with certain costs of living, as recipients of the postgraduate bursary ordinarily will not be entitled to LA funding. NB: Financial awards are dependent on individual circumstances.
The Graduate Trainee Scheme is run in conjunction with Suffolk County Council. It is aimed at graduates who have the potential for a career in social work, but lack sufficient relevant experience to enrol straight onto the MA Programme. The dates will change for the current year, if the scheme is running. It will also be advertised in the local press.
