About the course

The BA in Social Work enables you to develop a sound grounding in social work skills, knowledge and values and we are committed to training you to the highest intellectual and professional standards. This innovative and challenging three-year programme has been validated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council). Those who successfully complete the programme will be eligible to apply to register as a qualified social worker with the HCPC.

The programme enjoys strong relationships with service users and carers and a range of statutory and voluntary agencies. You will experience high-quality placements which offer excellent learning opportunities and support in practice. You will also have the unique opportunity to apply for a placement in the University’s own voluntary social work agency, the Family Assessment and Support Unit (FASU), which was awarded one of the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education for its innovations in practice learning.

Future prospects

We organise a Careers Fair every Easter so that social work students can meet representatives from a range of employers from the statutory and independent sectors in the region and beyond.

Whilst the most common occupation is that of social worker, our graduates are also employed as community workers, welfare rights advisers, housing officers, youth justice officers and drugs specialists. Some other graduates choose to embark upon post-graduate study in the service of enhancing their skills in therapeutic practice or research, and some have returned to the University of Hull to complete doctorates in social work.
