Social work at Sussex was ranked 3rd in the UK in both The Times Good University Guide 2012 and The Sunday Times University Guide 2012, 4th in The Complete University Guide 2012-13, and 17th in the UK in The Guardian University Guide 2013.
Social work is a rapidly changing profession and here at Sussex we are at the forefront of innovation and development. We offer attractive opportunities in a department noted for its strength in professional education and its contribution to professional knowledge and practice.
We are among the leading institutions in the UK for the quality of our research and have recently launched the new Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth (CIRCY). We also have a proud tradition of providing rewarding opportunities for study, whether at initial qualifying, post-qualifying or doctoral levels.
We constantly build on our strong track record of interdisciplinarity to develop new approaches to inter-professional learning and research which recognise both the distinctiveness and the interconnected nature of social work as a discipline and a profession.
