Abstract

This project set out to examine the recruitment and selection of students for social work degree
programmes in England. Existing publicly available data were drawn from Higher Education Institution
(HEI) websites, online prospectuses, UCAS1 databases and GSCC2 statistical records. In addition,
a web-based survey tool was used to gather from admissions tutors the details of their selection
processes, and to identify examples of good practice. Programmes providing initial qualifications in
social work at Masters-level were not included. The research was funded by SWAP
