A Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) with honours at a minimum of 2.2 preferably in a Social Science related subject.
Evidenced study in the area of English and Maths is also required.
Applicants with other professional qualifications and experience may be considered on an individual basis.
In addition to the academic qualifications, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to and knowledge of Social Work as a career via a maximum 500 word personal statement. This should include a reflection upon their personal values, their personal motivation for this career choice and their reasons for wishing to study on this particular programme.
There will be a selection interview involving both a group and an individual interview. Competition for places varies from year-to-year and achievement of the typical minimum entry requirements does not always guarantee shortlisting for interview or a place on the course.
Admission to the Programme is dependent upon a satisfactory Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) Check. This will be sent to you prior to interview and will be conducted on the interview day. The cost of the PVG check will be paid by the University.
All students are required to register as a Social Work student with the Scottish Social Services Council on joining the programme.
We welcome applications from students studying a wide range of international qualifications.
