This new, fast-track social work course focusing on children, young people and their families will enable trainee social workers to build upon their existing knowledge and skills, and develop the expertise required for social work practice.
The Department of Education will be funding this course through a cluster of local authorities which includes Dorset, Bournemouth, Poole and Wiltshire, with all applications being made directly to them. You’ll have the option to continue your studies from a Postgraduate Diploma to a Master’s by undertaking a dissertation which will be self-funded.
This course gives you the opportunity to study in a high-profile and nationally recognised department and benefit from direct access to research active and internationally linked academic staff. If you already hold an undergraduate degree and are interested in specialising in work with children and young people, this is the ideal social work course option.
The next intake starting in January 2018 is now closed for applications. It is not currently confirmed if there will be any further intakes for this course.
Next start date:
Bournemouth University, Lansdowne Campus
14 months to complete the PG Dip
Health & Care Professions Council
Applicants will normally have a 2:1 degree in any subject area. If English is not your first language you'll need IELTS 7.0 (Academic) or above. For more information check out our full entry requirements
