Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying)

Part-Time Course Plan

The following are suggested patterns of enrolment or pathways for candidates studying on a part-time basis. They take into account unit pre-requisite, co-requisite and timetabling requirements. Candidates can each year choose to study more units than the part-time pattern, but if doing so should use these suggested patterns as guides as to how best to structure their studies.

A six credit point unit is estimated to require a total workload of approximately 150 hours per unit (this means about 12 to 15 hours per week per unit).
