Section: Studying Social Work
Social work education is offered at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The 4-year undergraduate programme leads to the BSc (Social Work) degree from the University at Honours level. The 2-year postgraduate programme leads to either the Master of Social Work (MSW) degree or the Diploma in Social Work from the University.
We have a lively community of PhD students who have come from all over the world to study with us. You can read more about their work on our Student Profiles pages.
We also offer a portfolio of MSc/Diploma/Certificate programmes in Advanced Social Work Studies to meet the CPD needs of a range of professionals. Developed in collaboration with professional bodies and agency partners, these cover areas as diverse as Adult Protection/Safeguarding, Criminal Justice and Mental Health. We plan to add more programmes over the next few years.
Information about our Undergraduate Programmes is available on the Undergraduate Teaching Office website. You'll also find our CUE: Social Work (Coming to the University of Edinburgh) pages there, which are a good place to get started.
Information about our Postgraduate Programmes is available on the Graduate School of Social and Political Studies website.
