    This course will equip you with the necessary skills to become a competent social work practitioner. You will:

    • Explore the philosophy of social work and develop a personal style of practice, informed by a professional value base
    • Acquire knowledge and skills to work sensitively and effectively within the current legal framework
    • Understand, evaluate and apply social work research to practice at a national and international level
    • Acquire a firm academic and practice base on which to build further study at post qualifying level

    Throughout the three year course you will study units alongside other students in the School of Health & Social Care, such as nurses, midwives, sociology & social policy students, and occupational therapists. This interprofessional learning reflects the reality of the health care environment where communication between professions is crucial to ensuring correct and appropriate care of clients.

    Your study base will be at our Lansdowne Campus, and you will also experience placements in a variety of locations surrounding Bournemouth.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
