Entry Requirements For This Course
The Integrated Masters in Social Studies: Communities, Families and Individuals 80 UCAS points however all prospective students will be interviewed and offers made based on experience and evidence of commitment to the area of study.
This programme has been designed for students who wish to work with groups and individuals in a variety of settings, to challenge social exclusion and to enhance equality of opportunity.
Therefore we are looking for students with a strong motivation to make a difference to the lives of potentially disadvantaged people, or to meet the range of needs of people as they experience difficulties through the course of their lives. This motivation may be reflected in subject choice, or it may be reflected in interests outside of school or college, such as volunteering or an activity they have completed through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
We particularly welcome applications from mature students, and students who come from potentially disadvantaged backgrounds themselves. We have found that non-traditional students can offer life experience as carers and users of services, and frequently flourish on this programme. Mature students (over 21 years old) are not required to fulfil the UCAS requirements.
Applicants will require DBS checks prior to enrolment.
