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.
Find out more about our team of academics, PhD students and professional services colleagues.
We are based in the Chrystal Macmillan Building on George Square at the heart of the central campus.
