Why study Social Work at Goldsmiths? 

Goldsmiths is one of the leading universities for social work education in the UK.

Our teaching is characterised by a strong commitment to social justice and antioppressive principles, and, as such, we strive to cultivate an inclusive learning environment. In study groups you are actively encouraged to explore and manage the tensions, ambiguities and uncertainties that exist in social work practice so that you are equipped with the knowledge, values and skill set you need to practise as a reflective and ethical social worker.

"The course was interesting, challenging, demanding and thought-provoking. It stretched me, expanded my thinking and made me realise my capabilities not just professionally but personally."

Three years ago I was sponsored by my employer to complete an MA in Practice Education. I chose Goldsmiths as it has a good academic reputation; as a young person I never dreamed I would be a student at Goldsmiths. I really valued the support and encouragement I received from the tutors.

The course was interesting, challenging, demanding and thought-provoking. It stretched me, expanded my thinking and made me realise my capabilities not just professionally but personally. Goldsmiths is organised, consistent, reliable and treated us like professionals. Plus, it's a great community to be part of. I know from my own experience as a manager that employers are aware of the calibre of students graduating from Goldsmiths.

As a result of the course, I've recently been appointed as Practice Development Manager at Southwark Council. I have also been invited to teach on a module of the Practice Education course at Goldsmiths for those who are supervising newly qualified social workers."
