A chat with Social Work student, Helen

It took some time for me to realise that I wanted to pursue a profession in social work. All of the qualities and values that I admire are at the heart of social work. The fact that social work offers such a varied range of opportunities also appealed to me. Plus, the fact that it seeks to make the world a better place. This meant that I could contribute my part to improving people’s lives.

Meet 4th Year Social Work student, Lucy

Once I recognised the broad field of work that social work offers, I was so intrigued. Knowing that I could go into a career that would identify where my strengths are and allow me to match these with a particular field of work really sat well with me as opposed to a career that didn’t have much room to diversify.
