Social Work Taster Day

Interested in social work? Visit us at our open day or talk to a tutor.

The aim of social work is to provide and manage care, support and protection to individuals, families, groups and communities so that they can participate and develop in society. We hold drop-in sessions where you can find out more about all our social work courses, whether you're looking to study a BA full-time or part-time or if you already hold a degree and are interested in our MA course.

We have no other dates for taster days at the moment but we would love to meet you at one of our open days. Alternatively, if you have specific queries and want to email us we will make sure that you get a chance to talk to a tutor. Don't forget to let us know what campus you are interested in.
