Hey all, I'm an international student intending to apply to Masters in Social Work for Fall 2021. Is there anyone else who is putting their application together and preparing for the selection process?

Thought we could all come together and support each other through it.

I have applied to York, Middlesex, Londonmet, Anglia Ruskin & Royal Holloway. What about you? I noticed that Middlesex Social work postgrad is 18 months and the rest run for the full 2 years.

Best of luck! I'm planning to apply to Liverpool Hope, Derby, Chester and Cumbria. As an international student it's difficult to find affordable MA options and scholarship opportunities so I had to choose colleges with that in mind.

Thank you! Good luck to you. Well funnily enough I noticed last night that Middlesex university run a Social Work Pgdip which still qualifies you as a social worker but just means you don’t do a dissertation at the end of the course and it costs £11,100 for international students and they offer scholarships plus it’s for 18months. For me personally the 6 months less makes a huge difference when you factor in the costs of accommodation etc whilst on the course.

You've been a huge help! Thank you. I hadn't considered the PgDip option until now. I might apply to Middlesex as well. Also, why does it say 14 months on the course info page?

It is actually 14 months I made a mistake, I realised later haha but shows that you are on the ball! But that’s just better! I was speaking to a few friends of mine and someone informed me the Government announced that there will be additional funding for people undertaking healthcare courses but I’m not sure if it’s also available to international students but I do think it’s worthwhile looking.

That's awesome. I don't think I'd be eligible for that though. I checked with immigration and apparently I can't switch to a skilled work visa in the future if I graduate from a Pg Diploma. So MA it is for me. Bummer haha.

Hello Alex!

So glad to hear from you, I submitted my application for the university for the postgrad in social work 2021, I was just wondering how long roughly it takes for the university to get back to students.

Also will there be adaptations to the admissions process with recent Covid announcements?

Thanks!

You are not too late. Deadline for application is January 15. So I think you are still good. Information about fees and funding is usually displayed on the school's website. So it depends on you knowing the schools you want to go to.
