Do you want to join leading world-leading experts to develop research, policy and practice to enhance social justice and to improve social work and social policy?
Our programmes focus on the key issues in the international policy and practice agenda, employing a critical and a comparative perspective. They provide opportunities for developing and researching sophisticated systemic ways of working and for creating exceptional, relational achievements. They analyse the challenges for organisations across all sectors as providers re-structure, develop and implement new policy and practice, and as new commissioning arrangements reshape service delivery. They provide opportunities to pursue social justice in social policy, and to improve outcomes for children and for adults using services.
Led by accomplished practitioners and internationally recognised researchers in the field, these postgraduate courses provide the opportunity to study the most up-to-date research and to develop your own research profile. Whether you are a graduate practitioner delivering services, a recent graduate looking to enhance your career prospects in this field, or an experienced practitioner looking to return to higher education and gain a postgraduate qualification, you are sure to benefit from these programmes.
The Institute also offers supervision opportunities for independent study for a research degree in a range of areas. We welcome applications which align with the research interests and expertise of Institute staff, from both home and international students whether they wish to develop their research in the UK or abroad. The team can offer supervisory support for proposals utilising quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods which address one of the areas of study listed here
