Hey I thought this may be useful for those who are wanting to study Social Work at UWE and other places.

I haven't been able to hear anything about this course and what it is like at UWE when studying this.

Anyone able to shed some light?

Im thinking of Bath, Lancaster, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Kent.

However, also thinking of Canterbury and Chichester. Im not quite sure. I am quite nervous about applying because I have heard universities prefer mature students over students that are coming out of college.

But they, also base it on valuable experience. Do you mind me asking what experience you have had.

I have worked as a care assistant in residential homes and as a community support worker, I think they take a wide range of ages. I feel quite nervous as I am applying myself not through a college so didn't have much help with my application or personal statment. I will be 23 when I start as long as I get in.

Im sure you will be fine. Have you already applied? Good Luck if so. I will be 19 when i start (if i am accepted). I also work 18 hours a week as a care assistant. I am a service user myself, i have participated in social work training programmes and helped recruit new foster careers in my local area. I am so nervous about applying. Especially because of the test, group interviews and pannel interviews if get called in.

I'm also coming from college, I did a placement at a daycare centre for adults with learning difficulties and a community based project. This year I have a placement at a school for children and post 16 who have complex needs and a youth centre. I've also been a service user at one point and am involved with the interviews for social work at a local university. I haven't sent my application yet as I'm working on my personal statement. X

I've read that most social work interviews involve a sole interview with the head of department and a service user or social worker x

well, nobody here said that you're looking for an undergraduate degree.

Personally, I'd not recommend south Wales, Cardiff met and Gloucestershire.
