Master of Social Work (MSW): Links with practitioners

Working with practitioners

Key stakeholders representing agencies, service users and carers support the Social Work MSW. This helps to ensure your studies are up to date and relevant to the current and future needs of the workplace. You will benefit from:

  • teaching partnerships – links with practice teaching consultants who contribute to teaching at the university;
  • the chance to shadow experienced social workers and make observation visits;
  • plenty of opportunities to put your own skills into practice, thanks to two placements totalling 170 days during the two years of the MSW; and
  • teaching and experiential learning with staff who are fully qualified in their area of expertise – many are also expert practitioners.

Please note that placements are arranged with our partner agencies, which are all geographically close to the University. The maximum travelling time to placements will normally not exceed two hours each way from the University.
