MSW Student Testimonials

Here's what our students have to say:


University student
The course is simply fantastic. I cannot emphasise enough the effort the entire Sociology Department puts into the programme, from support academically to the quality of visiting guest lecturers. They respond to feedback and adapt the course accordingly. I have been inspired, challenged, and engaged. I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to embark on this course. If this is the subject you have decided upon, Durham University Sociology Department is at the forefront of modern social work research/practice.

The Durham University MSW is truly everything I was hoping for. The intimate class size has meant ample opportunity for support and conversation with peers as well as staff. The university gives us access to the latest information in the field and the teaching section of the course has provided the chance to explore key issues with a variety of experts. Teaching staff are both experienced and understanding. They always make time to answer questions and provide in depth explanation for assignments.  The university also has excellent working relationships with a variety of organisations meaning there are plenty of options when it comes to placements.
