The University of Salford’s BA (Hons) in Social Work provides cutting edge approaches to teaching and learning. Engaging students in a critical and meaningful approach to practice, the BA (Hons) in Social Work provides students with the requisite knowledge, values and skills needed to begin to recognise and address some of the most difficult social problems facing individuals, communities and societies today. The programme is characterised by a research-led curriculum in which staff use their own social work knowledge and experience to support students to learn and critically apply different theories and methods of research and practice. Governed by a Teaching Excellence Framework, these innovative and creative approaches to learning are designed to prepare students for confident and capable social work practice as applied with people living and working in diverse settings. Studying social work at the University of Salford ultimately enables students to learn about leading developments in the discipline so that they can gain a solid foundation from which to build practice wisdom and the ability to work with safety and effectively with others.
We're very proud that Salford is the highest ranking university in the North West for Social Work in the latest Guardian league tables.
Our approach to social work education reflects the important connections that exist between individuals, families and communities. We are proud of our ability to offer students a broad and solid foundation for professional social work practice and value opportunities for the exchange of ideas and experience with academics, professionals and experts by experience.
This course comprises periods of academic study and practice learning in a social work or social care setting. These practice learning opportunities enable students to safely apply and develop the learning that has been advanced in practice.
Students will complete the modules over the three years full-time.
