Studying Social Work in Ireland

A degree in Social Work will help graduates significantly impact society's most vulnerable lives. Patience, understanding and communication are the key skills which will be developed during this programme due to the focus on a practical learning environment.

Modules in a Social Work degree will tackle these issues head-on as you learn about social science, work processes and practice, risk protection, child care and ethics. Degrees last for three years, with placements taking place at social work agencies during year two to give you vital experience of what the role is like in a practical environment.

Social Work Careers

Social Work graduates will find employment in the charity, private and public sectors. Depending on what specialisations were undertaken whilst studying, social workers will work with adults, children, people with learning disabilities, the homeless, people with substance abuse issues and foster families.
