Changes to policy and curriculum

BA (Hons) Social Work (Scotland) (Q41) - Qualification amendment

The University plans to make some changes to the BA (Hons) Social Work (Scotland) (Q41) from October 2020.

Under the existing structure, Stage 4 consists of two compulsory modules: Adulthood, ageing and the life course (K319) and Critical social work practice (K315). K319 was available for the final time in October 2018 and has subsequently been replaced with the module Investigating health and social care (K323). As this module has less of a focus on adulthood and ageing than K319 we are introducing another module, Approaches to mental health (K314) as an option for students to study.

The module K323 will still count towards this qualification and will continue to be an option for students wishing to study this module. However, students will now be able to choose between K323 and K314 from October 2020.

Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
