The social work degree aims to train you to be a confident, effective, resilient and safe practitioner.
Successful completion of the Social Work BA (Hons) degree will confer eligibility to apply for registration as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) on graduation.
Please note, the final intake for this degree programme will be September 2017.
Following this date, Social Work teaching at De Montfort University will only be available through the Social Work MA postgraduate programme, subject to validation.
This decision will enable the university to meet the changing academic standards expected under the UK Government’s planned transformation of social work.
Any student accepted to study this programme in the September 2017 intake will be unaffected by this decision and will continue to have access to the same exceptional teaching and opportunities available to those currently studying at the university.
