Social Work

The University of Warwick has a long established reputation for delivering high-quality social work training and this year saw the launch of an exciting new development, our BA (Hons) Social Work. This degree apprenticeship has been designed in conjunction with employers at a range of local councils and has been approved by the HCPC.

Whilst we focus on this new development and consider the social work landscape, we will take the time to review our Master’s in Social Work and will not currently be accepting applications for the Master’s programme.

Our graduates are keenly sought and have strong employment prospects as social workers in a variety of statutory, voluntary and private organisations.
