Social Work Course Structure

The Bachelor of Social Work degree (BSW) at the University of Sydney prepares graduates for professional practise as social workers. The BSW is accredited by the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and the qualification is widely accepted overseas. The BSW has a '2x2’ course structure, that is, two years' study in Arts plus two years' of professional studies in social work and social policy.

Students who have questions about their own degree programs should, in the first instance, direct these to the administrator by email or telephone, or in person at the faculty's Student Administration Office, Level 3 of the Education Building. Full descriptions of units of study can be found in the Faculty handbook entry for BSW students.
