Overview

We are very pleased to announce that we will now be offering our programs online for all international students, whether they are here in Australia or planning to study online from their home country.

This means that students can commence their studies at ACU as scheduled, for Semester 2, 2020.

Students who are currently in Australia can commence their ACU program online and will progress to on-campus study when possible.

Students who are currently outside of Australia can commence their studies online. If travel restrictions are lifted, students will then have the choice to complete their semester online or travel to Australia. We will continue to monitor this situation carefully and confirm arrangements for transfer onto campus when travel restrictions are lifted.

The Master of Social Work from Australian Catholic University is a vibrant and challenging program that encourages students to build on their existing knowledge and experience as well as providing a sound understanding of social work values and practice approaches.
