ADVICE  FOR MANAGING YOUR COURSE LOAD

For the working adult we recommend a maximum of 3 courses for semesters 1 & 2 and no more than 2 in summer.
 
FOUN course codes: These are level one courses that should be completed before you take level 2.
Foundation courses have a final face-to-face exam
The core Social Work courses are 100% continuous assessment (do not carry final examinations)

    Note:

  • Semesters 1 and 2 each have 13-14 weeks of tuition
  • Summer has 7-9 weeks of tuition
