MSW Student Social Work Annual Research Conference

MSW Student Social Work Annual Research Conference

Masters of Social Work students at the end of their research module present their study findings at our annual MSW postgraduate conference. The conference takes place in April/May each year.

The MSW Course Team has for several years shought to made the findings of the 2nd year research dissertations available to a wider audience. All the presenters are second year students who have successfully completed two fieldwork placements and are coming to the end of their course. The research dissertations offer students the opportunity to expand their own knowledge base in an area of social work which is of particular interest to them, often drawn from direct experience in their practice placements. The diversity of interests is reflected in the conference presentation themes which this year include: Inter-country Adoption, Mental Health recovery, Intellectual Disability, Children’s Rights, Cultural Diversity, Multi-disciplinary working relationships and many other areas relevant to contemporary social work practice.

The conference is attended by students, tutors and lecturers from both years on the course, and presenters are encouraged to invite those whose assistance was invaluable in the completion of their research process – fieldwork practice teachers, service users, research respondents and the general public.
