Want to help people? Feel passionate about social justice and human rights - then social work is the right profession for you.
On your way to a satisfying career, you will study specialized social work courses, society and social arrangements, human behaviour and development, human services provision and counselling approaches and techniques to name a few core study areas.
You will complete two 500 hour field placements in your degree. Field placements give you the chance to put your academic knowledge and skills into practice, develop new ones and sample social work practice in the real world.
You will be supervised by a qualified social worker for the duration of your field placements.
In some situations, it may be possible to negotiate a workplace-based field placement.
Placements will be sourced in your area of choice where possible.
Students living in remote or rural areas may have limited choices depending on the availability of organisations within their local area and may have to travel.
You will become highly proficient in all core areas of social work theory and practice, develop critical thinking and reflective skills and be prepared for practice grounded in the values and ethics of the profession - social justice, diversity, equity and a commitment to the rights and needs of the people with whom you work.
