Field Education: BSW

What is Field Education?

Field Education placements are an opportunity for students to gain work experience in the social work field under the supervision of an experienced professional. Placements are completed in a wide range of community and government agencies and can usually be done in your home community. Normally students complete their field education placements in a single semester. We do, however, offer a two semester, part-time, option from September to April only. 

If you are a registered student in the School of Social Work, you can use your NetLink ID to log into the Field Education site. This site has application information, forms, and deadlines.
