Course Summary

The MSW in Social Work is a two-year, full-time postgraduate degree course. The qualification is recognised throughout the UK and it’s expected that in due course it will meet the criteria for recognition in the EU and elsewhere overseas.

The Masters in Social Work course is based on the Standards in Social Work Education (SiSWE) and is to be validated by social work's professional body in Scotland, the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). The degree provides a stimulating blend of university-based teaching and agency-based learning opportunities across both years.

Assessment

Our assessment methods consist of regular feedback on specific tasks related to teaching and learning as you work through a module. Modules are formally assessed in a range of different ways, including essay, report, presentations and peer group assessments.
