We work with local and international partners on all our teaching programmes to make sure that our teaching reflects our commitment to social work values, ethics and social justice.
We provide a range of educational opportunities for both intending and qualified social workers, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level (BSc, MSW, MSc by Research, PG Certificate and PhD).
Through our wide-ranging portfolio of research and knowledge exchange activities, we seek to impact on both the social work policy and practice communities, locally and internationally.
