We recognise there may be a variety of reasons why you might not have the required UCAS entry requirements to secure a place on the full degree programme. This integrated foundation year will enable you to transition onto our BA (Hons) Social Work course. It will also help you prepare for academic life at university.

As part of the foundation year, you’ll:

  • Study health and community studies-related modules that will give you a broad understanding of the multi-disciplinary health and social care sector
  • Study additional modules that will help you develop the academic and study skills you’ll need to successfully transition from school, college or the workplace into higher education

As part of your course, you’ll:

  • Study psychosocial themes and perspectives, and theories and policies relating to social welfare and the safeguarding of adults and children
  • Complete extended placements, which will help fulfil part of the professional body requirements for registration as a social worker
  • Integrate professional experience with study to develop the essential knowledge and skills required for a career supporting diverse groups of service users in social work

You'll discover how to access the extensive learning resources and support services available here at Leeds Beckett, whether you need a hand locating specialist materials in the Library, IT support or advice about personal issues.
