Study type Taught


Focus on your professional development needs at a pace that suits you. Study specialist units that reflect your career aspirations. Develop practical skills you can use in the field.

Our part-time, postgraduate course is designed for practitioners working in social work or social care. It’s a flexible course and we offer a range of learning pathways to help you develop your career across the field of social work.

We offer three professional post-qualifying final awards: postgraduate certificate (PgCert, 60 credits), postgraduate diploma (PgDip, 120 credits) and master of arts (MA, 180 credits).

You can study at a pace that suits you and take either individual units or complete a full programme to enhance your practice-based skills and knowledge.

Usually, you’ll choose a pathway with your employer and then we’ll explore a study route for you. We take into account your level of experience and skill, your work context and setting, and the skills you wish to develop.

Once you and your employer decide on a learning pathway, we’ll provide you with detailed guidance for each area of study.
