Through an integrated learning approach, students are supported to develop as competent, confident, analytical, and reflective practitioners who can work safely and effectively in complex, challenging environments to make a difference in the lives of people and society.

Interprofessional learning is at the core of this programme, enabling students to learn, develop, and collaborate with students from other disciplines in health and social care, including Nursing, Occupational Therapy, and Physiotherapy students. Students may take advantage of the excellent research environment and opportunities available to build on links between social work practice and research to undertake their own real-world research study. The Social Work programme from University of Lincoln benefits from strong international links providing chances for focused teaching and study visits further afield.

Career and Personal Development

Supporting the youngest to the oldest in society, social work will take practitioners from hospitals to care homes, and schools to communities as they help people through some of the best and most challenging times of their lives. Social workers could find themselves guiding a young person through their mental health journey, helping a family to grow through adoption, or supporting vulnerable people to improve their independence and wellbeing. Providing this level of support in someone’s life can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
