You will move between campus-based learning and practice-learning within a diverse range of social work-related workplaces.

In this way you will learn first hand how to critically use and evaluate your knowledge to support others to improve the outcomes of their lives and enhance their overall well-being.

You will be encouraged to make links between the knowledge you gain during this course with the experience, skills, and expertise you bring to it, and to be self-directed in your learning. 

We teach using a variety of methods including:

  • taught inputs from academic staff and practitioners
  • problem solving and research tasks, individually and in groups
  • practice learning opportunities in a diverse range of social work related workplaces
  • tutor and peer support
  • skills based role-play
  • service user and carer perspectives

You will be able to take advantage of practice learning opportunities across a range of locations including Dundee, Perth, Fife, Angus, and Edinburgh, allowing you to establish a broad range of networks. 


The course is assessed through essay-based tasks, emphasising the links between theory and practice.
