Considering a career in Social Work?

The University of Manchester has a well-established history of providing excellent social work education, training and innovative research. We offer a postgraduate pre-qualifying social work course and a range of post-qualifying courses including MRes Health and Social Care, MPhil and PhD.

Course approval status

The MA Social Work is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This means that graduating students are eligible to apply for registration as a Social Worker. The programme has also received endorsement from The College of Social Work (TCSW) which is a marker of its quality. Both HCPC and TCSW regularly inspect the course provision to ensure that standards continue to meet the status of approval.
