Exceptional resources

The School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research is home to world experts across the social sciences. Our Social Sciences and Social Work students make use of the excellent resources in the Drill Hall Library and can also order books and journals from the Templeman Library at our Canterbury campus. 

If you are studying Social Work, you also take part in role-play sessions with volunteer service users in our purpose-built consultation rooms. These give you experience of how real-life interviews may develop. Your tutor is able to observe you discreetly, giving you feedback and support to help you to acquire the skills and expertise you need as a professional social worker.
