In Social Work and Community Wellbeing we have particular strengths in working with children and their families, mental health and wellbeing. Our expert teaching team, drawn from a range of professional and research backgrounds, works with our students to help them reach their full potential and equip them to enter a range of professional roles focused on children, adults, families and communities.

We offer work placements; a great way to build your confidence in essential skills and gain valuable first-hand experience in the workplace, helping you to stand out to graduate recruiters. We offer study abroad which is a fantastic way to broaden your cultural awareness, gain experience of a different academic environment, and develop a range of skills which enhance your employability.
