BSc Social Work

Your interview will last for approximately 30 minutes and will take place online via Microsoft Teams. 

You will be asked questions about the social work role, the values or principles that underpin social work, what you are expecting to study on the social work programme at UWE Bristol and the ways in which social workers might practice.

You will find it useful to prepare by researching social work roles, values and ethical dilemmas, by exploring websites such as The Social Care Institute for Excellence and Community Care websites. You may also find it useful to reflect on your knowledge of social work and social care from your life, work or voluntary experiences.

You may be asked to complete a written task before or after your interview. You will be required to complete a short task and email it back to the faculty but further information will come before your interview.
