Accredited by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), this degree prepares graduates to apply for registration with the SSSC or other social work regulators throughout the UK. With social work now establishing itself as a global profession, the programme curriculum fully reflects the differences, debates and tensions within global social work concerning the manner in which practice should be conducted and the way in which the profession should develop. Offering a challenge and stimulating range of learning opportunities, graduates will be equipped with the key attributes necessary to work in a varied, global working environment.
