I’m Dan and I study Social Work at Edge Hill University. I decided to study Social Work because I really wanted to make an active contribution to promoting social justice and support people to make positive changes in their lives.

The best thing about my course is the wide range of learning opportunities we are provided with, such as through 2 practice placements, group tasks and lectures. The expertise of the lecturers helps me to gain thorough knowledge of various areas of Social Work including Children and Families, Mental Health and Social Work with Adults.

Employment opportunities are high after graduation, due to the close links the University has with employers in both the voluntary and public sectors. This highlights the reputation of the course and this was extremely appealing to me when choosing to study here.
