The Bachelor of Social Work is a professionally accredited degree that 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.

Criminal History check: Students must obtain a working with children clearance notice (Ochre Card) and have cleared a Police Check before they can undertake placements. Students whose Police Checks are not cleared will not be able to undertake placements and will not, therefore, be able to complete the requirements of the course.
