MSc Social Work Studies

My experience as a post graduate social work student has been a great journey with lots of worthwhile experiences and challenges.

The course provided me with valuable theoretical and practical knowledge to develop my understanding of social work processes and procedures. I found the use of a mix of teaching methods such as group work, presentations and written essays very effective for developing my ability to write and present formal social work reports.

My placements taught me how to apply theoretical knowledge to social work practice and I received excellent guidance from my personal tutor and practice educator.

Looking back from when I first started the course, I believe I have developed immensely both as an individual and a professional social worker. I am more confident in my ability to engage with people from varied social and cultural backgrounds.
