Hey @alimasood, how are you? :smile:

Have you thought about attending any postgraduate open days for a better insight into each uni's MA Social Work course? That way you can speak directly to current students and the academics on the course.

Some things you could take into consideration are researching the programmes and seeing which one best aligns with your interests, different schools could offer various specialisations within social work. You could look at faculty qualifications, their contributions to the field.. Does the course offer a good mix of both theory and practical placements?

You could also check the uni's websites and see if there are any student profiles, blogs, course videos etc for the course so you can get a good insight into MA Social Work and general student life at the uni.

I wish you the very best of luck in making your decision! :smile:
