With a Master of Social Work, you will have the skills, experience and platform to protect the vulnerable, fight social injustice and help those from disadvantaged circumstances turn their lives around. Seek membership of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) when you graduate and set yourself up for senior roles in a rapidly growing sector. You will study this course alongside a group of students that, while diverse, all share a common passion for helping others.

You will undertake at least 1000 hours of professional placement preparing you for the challenges you will face in your future role. You can take on placements at a variety of organisations, broadening your experience and professional networks and you will be supervised by qualified social work practitioners who can give you feedback and expert guidance along the way.
