I'm looking for some information about the degree "Social Work" and student life in university at Manchester. I plan to pursue this degree next year after my undergraduate degree and just want some knowledge and insight into the course and university experience at postgraduate level.
My questions:
1. What is Social Work?
2. What will the degree cover? (Topics, context etc)
3. Why type of fields can I go into with the degree?
4. What is the social life like at postgraduate level?
5. What is the social life like for students who study Social Work?
6. Is Manchester a friendly, sociable and multicultural city?
7. What is the best option for postgraduates in terms of accommodation?
8. Which university offers the best opportunities?
(Manchester Metropolitan University)
(University of Manchester)
(University of Salford)
9. Are students during masters degree interactive, outgoing and engaging or reserved and settled down?

If anyone could answer those questions it would be so much helpful to me!

Hello commentsection,

Glad to hear you may be interested in qualifying as a social worked through the postgraduate route. As you may know, here at Manchester Met we do offer an accelerated 2-year course to qualify as a social worker. I am going to try to answer to your questions and hopefully this will help.

Social Work is about promoting human rights and social justice and it aims to bring change through working in partnership with individuals, families and communities often at the point of distress and vulnerability.
The degree at Manchester Met will cover a variety of topics that will equip you with knowledge and skills required to qualify as a social worker. You can find details of the units under the 'Course Details' tab of our course prospectus. You will also find information on career prospects!

In terms of social life, Manchester is a very diverse and multicultural city that offers lots of opportunities. You'll get to study with peers from all over the world and we believe this is a great bonus. If you want to find out more about the student life at Manchester Met and generally in Manchester, I would recommend attending the Open Days of the universities you may apply to. You can find info about our next Postgraduate Open Day here.

Accommodation-wise, it is totally entirely up to you: if you apply to live at a university's hall, you are likely to share the accommodation with other students, this is normally a standard choice for first year students of undergraduate courses. If you'd like to check out accommodation out, check the link here.
It's hard to say what type of students are more or less interactive, as this totally depends on the person, however if one decides to study at university, I am sure they'll want to make friends and socialise with other students:rolleyes:.

Finally, I think the best way to understand which university is the right fit for you, I would highly recommend attending an Open Day. You will get a chance to explore what's on offer and you will be able to chat to academic and support staff, as well as current students who can all answer queries you may have.

I hope the above helps .

Cheers,

Luca
