Bachelor of Social Work

About the Course
The Bachelor of Social Work is a professionally accredited degree which allows students to meet the requirements for eligibility for membership with the Australian Association of Social Workers. The degree offers students the opportunity to study the core elements of social work with a focus on issues relevant to the Northern Territory. A key element of student┐s learning is the requirement to undertake two 70 day placements in the third and fourth years of study.


Students must have cleared a Police Check before they can undertake placements. Students whose Police Checks are not cleared by the education sectors will not be able to undertake placements and will not therefore be able to complete the requirements of the course.


Course Structure
The course comprises Common units, Core units, Specialist Electives and Elective units. The first two years provide foundation knowledge for social work, including psychology, sociology, organisational context and communication skills.


Later years include units in social work theory and practice, research methods, skills for working with individuals, groups and communities, legal aspects, specialised areas of practice and two 70 day field education placements.


Due to professional accrediting regulations, external students are required to attend 10 days per year of face to face teaching.


A candidate must successfully complete units totalling 320 credit points.


Of the total 320 credit points:
-Not more than 120 credit points may be taken from 100 level units
