Wherever you are in your social work career, use our three highly flexible courses to shape your own career path from newly qualified social worker to social care manager or specialist.

You will have the opportunity to choose modules from across our wide range of postgraduate health and social care courses, allowing you to align your studies with your interests and future responsibilities, such as leadership and management or working with substance abuse. You will become more informed about these areas and will gain the confidence and knowledge to take on further responsibilities in the world of social care, supporting and safeguarding adults, young people and children.

Learn from an experienced teaching team of qualified practitioners from across the health and social care professions, including social work and adult and mental health nursing.
