'I found this [MA] course fantastic. The content is varied and truly multi-disciplinary which, when allied with the diversity of students, means you get a truly expansive and refreshing perspective on all aspects of Child Protection... As a lawyer it has given me a much deeper insight into the everyday practice of child protection by other professions and allowed me to better understand the complexities of practice for front-line child protection professionals '
