The MA/PG DIP Social Work were developed in partnership with a range of key stakeholders, including social work service users and carers, and representatives from social work agencies. This is an intensive programme of study that combines a level 7 academic award with a qualification in Social Work. It is studied over two years full time. The course of study includes 200 days assessed practice placement and, as such, the timescale is very condensed. Classes will continue throughout the summer.
