Social Work courses are available at a Bachelor or Masters level. The Bachelor of Social Work is a 4-year program. The Master of Social Work is an academically advanced 2-year post-qualifying degree that builds on the prior knowledge and experiences that students bring to their studies.
The bachelor program allows entry for those who have completed a minimum of secondary school in their home country.
The Masters of Social Work is specifically designed for graduates holding degrees with some social and behavioral science components. Students in both programs will be prepared to make a meaningful contribution to people and communities as a dynamic professional social worker.
