The Social Work (Hons) course from London South Bank University   prepares students for the realities of social work practice, which can be both challenging and demanding, as well as stimulating and exciting.

This course combines formal university teaching and practical experience gained from both two placements in social care settings together and 30 skills days in the university. The programme is both academic and vocational and meets the requirements of the Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC). Success in this course can lead to registration with HCPC as a Social Worker.


If you’re interested in social work as a career, you would normally specialise in a certain group of society, such as children. Much of the work is around helping decide the level of support or protection required, responding to requests for help and working with other agencies and professionals for the best outcomes. Most opportunities are with local authorities. However, there are also opportunities available at private care homes, charities and NHS Trusts.

Students who have graduated from this course recently have gone on to work in a variety of settings, including local authority children and adult services departments, as well as in the voluntary sector.


Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council.
