Postgraduate Diploma and MA in Social Work

This route offers candidates who already hold a first degree the opportunity to qualify more quickly. Through our Postgraduate Diploma, students will be able to qualify as a social worker in less than 18 months.

The subject matter is interdisciplinary, derived from psychology, sociology, social policy, law and social work studies. The diploma can be claimed as a discrete qualification, or as an embedded award within the MA in Social Work. In our fully integrated approach, practice learning is undertaken alongside skills development and theoretical learning. The programme is work-based and delivered collaboratively by the OU and social work employers.

Subject to meeting the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration requirements, the Postgraduate Diploma is approved as a qualifying award for social workers in England and, subject to conditions, in Scotland by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
