Summary

Are you looking for a rewarding career that impacts the lives of individuals, families and communities? On successful completion of the Social Work MA course at Brunel, you’ll be eligible to apply for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration which is mandatory to practise social work.

Through a combination of academic expertise and high-quality practice placements you’ll be prepared for your career in social work, where 95% of our graduates are in employment after completing their studies. Brunel is located in London, home to a diverse landscape of social work settings. Our academics have strong connections within the sector and you’ll benefit from excellent work placement experience, over 170 days in total.

This HCPC* accredited course will equip you with the skills to tackle the challenges faced in social work today including problems such as county lines, cyber bullying, discrimination and extremism. You’ll learn about law, psychology, social policy and sociology, giving you a comprehensive understanding of various approaches. You’ll develop the skills to identify, understand and critically appraise evidence and research which can inform social work practice.

There is an opportunity for you to gain funding. 79% of students who started the Social Work MA at Brunel in 2018 received an NHS bursary, which is a reflection of the exceptional standing of our well-established programme.

*Please note that the registration awarding body is scheduled to change from the Health and Care Professions Council to Social Work England in December 2019.
