    Hi all,

    I have been given a place for either a social work masters or pgdip (I can choose what I want to do). Personally I really dont want to do a long dissertation and want to finish as soon as possible. I am self funding and will have to leave work so feel like I need to do the cheapest and shortest course possible that will qualify me to be a social worker.

    My question really is does anyone think doing a PgDip will hinder me as a social worker, for example not getting jobs etc.
    Does anyone have any experience or on the course heard anything in regards to this??

    I'd appreciate any thoughts or comments!

    Have a look at jobs you're interested in and work out what the entry requirements are.
