Why study social work at York?
Whether you choose to study with us on a taught social work, research or practice based course, you will be part of a diverse student body in a friendly and intellectually stimulating environment, supported by academics with a wide range of interests. You'll be encouraged to become an autonomous thinker, learn how to collect and analyse data and form strong arguments. You'll experience the practice of social work on placement with a range of service user groups such as vulnerable adults, people with mental health needs or children and families.
Come and visit us at an Open Day, explore our campus or chat to our students online. We host a range of events throughout the year including subject-specific events designed especially for people considering postgraduate study.
