Ranking and student feedback
The MSW in Social Work is a two-year, full-time postgraduate degree course. The qualification is recognised throughout the UK and it's expected that in due course it will meet the criteria for recognition in the EU and elsewhere overseas. The Masters in Social Work course is based on the Standards in Social Work Education (SiSWE) and is to be validated by social work's professional body in Scotland, the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). The degree provides a stimulating blend of university-based teaching and agency-based learning opportunities across both years.

You must have achieved or be on track to achieve a 2:1 honours degree preferably in an area of social sciences. In very exceptional circumstances, candidates who not do have an honours degree may be considered, if you have very extensive professional experience and can demonstrate academic ability at graduate level. It's preferable that candidates should have mathematics and English at Standard Grade (credit level), Intermediate 2 (A-C) or GCSE (A-C), or a recognised equivalent.
