A PhD in Social Work aims to enable you to develop knowledge in a specialist area and offers the opportunity to make a valuable and novel contribution to knowledge in a policy, practice or educational aspect of Social Work. At the core of your research studies will be the relationship with your supervisor. We encourage you to contact the academic with related interests using our supervisor search tool online, to discuss your proposal before submitting your application.
