Entry requirements

Master of Social Work (Graduate Entry)

Applicants must hold a bachelor degree or equivalent in an area other than social work. Selection is based on academic merit.

For applicants seeking admission from semester 1, 2021

The entry requirements for this course will be changing to the following:

  • Applicants must hold a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification in any discipline other than social work; and must also have completed the equivalent of one year full-time (36 units) of social science (as defined by the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia ie education, psychology, law, political science, history, accounting, economics, marketing, sociology, management, geography etc) topics within their undergraduate studies.
  • Applicants with less than a full-time year or no social science studies in their undergraduate degree should apply for the Graduate Certificate in Society and the Individual (SATAC code 2GC144) to meet this requirement.
  • As selection is based on academic merit applicants who do not have a competitive Grade Point Average but meet the social science studies requirement may wish to complete a Graduate Certificate such as Graduate Certificate in Loss, Grief and Trauma Counselling (SATAC code 2GC036) or Graduate Certificate in Counselling Vulnerable Children and Young People (SATAC code 2GC140) as they will achieve a new GPA for consideration provided the course is completed in its entirety.

Selection is based on academic merit.
