In our department, we offer a range of courses to help prepare you for a career in the exciting and challenging world of social care and social work.

We have a well-established reputation for our commitment to social justice and human rights, and we have a huge range of professional experience in the fields of social care and social work.

In the Department of Social Care and Social Work, we involve service users, carers and the wider community in our curriculum. This helps to make sure that when you graduate, you have a thorough understanding of social exclusion, social justice, and how to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people.

Our department at Manchester Metropolitan University has excellent networks with employers, and we organise a number of events throughout the year to help you meet with potential employers.

We also work in partnership with a number of key local employers in the North West, who influence the content of our Social Care and Social Work programmes and provide placements.

These employer partnerships help to ensure that our students are sought-after graduates with the range of skills and abilities that employers are looking for.

Our staff have a huge range of professional experience and are engaged in cutting-edge research, which they bring to life in the classroom.

They offer a high degree of support to students, and work in partnership with employers and the community to help ensure that students can successfully move from their degrees into a rewarding career.

After graduating from our BA (Hons) Social Care programme, there are various opportunities within the world of social care in the UK and abroad.

You could also continue your studies, with our MA Health and Social Care or MA Social Work.

Whether you graduate from our BA (Hons) Social Work or MA Social Work, we offer a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) master’s programme. This is designed to reflect the Professional Capabilities Framework, which offers a variety of masterclasses to suit the needs of developing social workers.

We also offer opportunities to engage in higher degree research, and welcome social care and social work staff who wish to undertake an MRes, MPhil or Phd programme of study.

All our Social Work courses are Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and endorsed by The College of Social Work.
