Social and Community Studies

Help transform your community

Every community has its vulnerable and marginalised citizens. You'll be part of a compassionate community of students and colleagues that strive to make a difference in their lives. With professionally accredited courses developed in partnership with employers and service users, you'll develop the ideas and resilience required to assist citizens facing significant challenges.

Within the subject area of Social and Community studies, you have the opportunity to choose from a range of professional and vocational undergraduate and post graduate courses that have been designed to develop knowledge and skills for work with children, families and people within diverse communities. On our courses you will have access to expert teaching and practical experience of working with these groups and communities to give you the confidence and expertise to enter the world of work in social and community settings.

your student experience

From our hands-on training to our partnerships with local organisations and charities, you'll graduate with the practical experience to shine in your career. You'll be trained and supported by experienced practitioners, and hone your skills in facilities such as our simulated housing, hospital and courtroom spaces.
