If you enjoy working with people, thrive on the unexpected and want to make a difference in their lives, social work could be the career for you. Our degree course is nationally recognised and will prepare you for work in this rewarding area. Social work is about empowering people and supporting them towards being independent. Social workers help people to function, participate and develop in society.

Our course provides the knowledge, values and skills you will need to qualify as a social worker. But social work isn’t just about what you learn: it’s also about who you are. You will need qualities such as patience, honesty, sensitivity, tolerance, persistence and sound judgement.

As a student, you will train to assess people’s circumstances and needs. Working alongside other professionals, you will plan, provide, review and evaluate services. You will become skilled in problem-solving, and understand how to set up supportive activities with individuals, families, groups and communities. Learning to assess the risks facing vulnerable children or adults, and how to set up and measure protection plans for them will be key. You will also gain a thorough understanding of your legal powers and duties.

What are you waiting for? ARU is offering the best chance to combine theory and practice. ask for more information through Emagister's website!

Our course is approved by the HCPC, which makes it a professional qualification in social work. When you graduate, you’ll be able to apply to register with the HCPC as a social worker.

As a social worker, you’ll be at the forefront of helping the people most in need. You could work with a range of people, who are facing a range of issues, in a public, private or charitable organisation. You could even work independently.

Your placements will have given you experience of working both with adults and children, by the end of the course you will have a better idea of the area you are most interested in.

Our course will prepare you for working in a variety of settings, many of which can be as rewarding as they are challenging.

Lo mejor My favourite thing about the job is every day when I meet one of my own people and they say “thank you” or “you really helped me”. At the end of the day I know that I have done something to save their lives or change it for better. I'd recommend this course because it prepares you not only for the job, but for the lifestyle. It helps you grow and it opens your mind. Everything about you changes so you can be a better person as a whole.

Lo mejor I had a chat with some lecturers when I came on the opening day. I also attended some social work talks. The campus is really modern. I would recommend this course to other people if they have a real passion for working with service users or just helping people. You try to improve people's life. I’d describe this course as intense, motivating and enjoyable.
