Why Social work in Australia?  

Australia is one of the countries that experience steady demand for social workers. The country’s department of employment predicts the demand for social workers to rise by 22.5% by 2022. Australia is a home for a diverse population comprising a sizable indigenous and immigrant population. Therefore the importance of social workers in this setup is indisputable for a fair and smooth function of the country. 

A Master of Social Work degree from Australia is highly recognised across the world due to its emphasis on fieldwork. In the first year of the program, students undergo two field placements of 450-500 hours each. This intensive course structure provides hands-on work experience to students who can start their careers with high capability and confidence. Moreover, studying in Australia renders opportunities to study unique courses like ‘Social work with Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander people’, the equivalent of which is hard to find anywhere else. More than 23000 jobs are expected to open in the next 5 years in Australia.
