The key mission at the heart of this Master’s degree course in Social Work is to enable people in difficult life situations which fall under the target areas of social support to access social opportunity and participate fully in society.

Three central issues shape academic engagement with the overarching topic of people’s participation in society: they are developing people’s capacity to be or become financially self-supporting, exploring ways to build formal or informal support networks, and empowering people to turn their situations around and realise their potential. A dual focus on research and its application, led by an integrative approach to methodology, enables students to extend their social work toolkits.
