+Do I have to do a dissertation?

Yes. The programme is taught as a Master’s degree. Students must complete all parts of the programme, including the dissertation, to gain the MSW and be eligible to apply for registration as a social worker. The skills gained in carrying out a small research project for the dissertation are invaluable for future practice and for those who wish to pursue further research studies.
