Our MSc Child Protection and Adult Safeguarding is now more relevant than ever, with recent changes in safeguarding legislation (i.e. the Care Act 2014), and the impact of high-profile enquiries, such as the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham and Child Sexual Abuse. Offered on a full-time or part-time basis, it's ideal for professionals who want to improve their knowledge and practice when working with vulnerable people.

This unique, multi-disciplinary programme attracts working professionals in a range of areas and roles. Our postgraduate students include social workers, nurses and midwives, early years professionals, police officers, and doctors who want to become experts in safeguarding.

The course also appeals to analytical people who enjoy problem solving and want to add to research in this vital area. We attract graduates from a range of disciplines including sociology, psychology and education. Your peers will help you develop a greater understanding of the challenges faced by the safeguarding system.

Our teaching team are leaders in their fields. They come from different professional backgrounds and are actively involved in research. At Bucks we have a strong reputation for conducting safeguarding research, evaluation and consultancy to a range of organisations and government bodies. Because of the multi- disciplinary nature of the teaching staff, you will finish the course with a strong understanding and wide- ranging knowledge of safeguarding.

We are currently the only university offering a MSc in safeguarding exploring both children and adult content, which gives you a broader basis for your research and future career path. We use current best evidence to inform your decision making, whether in policy or practice.
