    Hi, we would recommend that you are up to date on any current affairs and issues that involve the social care sector. In order to do this, here are some useful links which should be of interest to you:
    http://www.communitycare.co.uk/
    http://www.cypnow.co.uk/category/disciplines/social-care
    http://www.theguardian.com/society/social-care
    It is also advisable to have a look at varying views for different policies and be able to have a good discussion about today’s climate within the social care sector. It is also advisable to have some knowledge of any policy changes in the sector and to understand some of the laws regarding social work; https://www.gov.uk/government/topics/social-care
    You should receive an article to read before the day. There will be a group discussion on the article. In addition to the group discussion there will also be an interview and a written assignment.
    It is also essential that you show your commitment to equality and diversity with a non-discriminatory attitude.
    We do hope you enjoy yourself on the day and get a lot out of the experience and visit. Best of luck and let us know if you have any other concerns or queries.

    I know your question was addressed to geek_22 but thought I’d just try an ease your nerves...

    As mentioned earlier Social Work BA (Hons) applicants are advised to be up to date with current affairs that involve the social care sector. Here are some useful links which should hopefully help you:

    http://www.communitycare.co.uk/

    http://www.cypnow.co.uk/category/dis...es/social-care

    http://www.theguardian.com/society/social-care

    I know I’m repeating myself but it is important to be able to have a good discussion about today’s climate within the social care sector. It is advisable to have some knowledge of any policy changes in the sector and to understand some of the laws regarding social work. Again, this link should help:

    https://www.gov.uk/government/topics/social-care

    All Social Work BA (Hons) applicants are sent an article to read before the Applicant Visit Day. There will be a group discussion on the article. Additionally there will be an interview and a written assignment.

    If you have any further concerns or queries relating to the day and what to expect please feel free to PM me or post below. Alternatively you’re welcome to contact our Admissions Department directly at [email protected].

    I hope you enjoy the day and you’re not worrying about it too much. Good luck!

    For this year’s intake there are approximately 28 places available for our Social Work MA course.

    The number of bursaries available has not yet been finalised however, our Admissions Team have confirmed that there will not be 28.

    All successful applicants who think that they will meet the requirements set by the NHSBSA are advised to apply for the social work bursary. In June 2015, the University will nominate successful applicants to the NHSBSA in rank order according to scores achieved during the selection process. Scores will be generated from an individual interview and written exercise.

    Further information regarding bursaries should be sought from the NHSBSA, directly at: http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/Students/841.aspx or on 0300 330 1342 / 0191 279 0569.
