The Guardian touts Kingston University Social Work Masters degree as ‘beacon of excellence

Beacon PicAn article featured in The Guardian has described the Faculty Masters in Social Work degree as a ‘beacon of excellence’, praising the course for being designed to give students ‘the skills they need for the profession in the 21st century’.

Speaking with course leader Wilson Muleya, the article champions our programme’s links with other countries and international placement opportunities, which give students an insight into how social work is practiced overseas, making them more culturally aware. James Hollingworth, an ex-Faculty student who undertook an international placement with The Aids Support Organisation (Taso) in Uganda and graduated with his masters degree three years ago, describes how the opportunity gave him ‘an experience of life with totally different concerns’, which still informs his working practice today.
