Start of 2020-2021 academic year: Online and on-campus
Since the corona outbreak, universities all over the world have switched to distance learning. A great alternative, but not ideal when you're just starting out. International Social Work is therefore offering regular on-campus classes for 1st-year students starting in September this year. You'll get 1 full day on campus every 2 weeks. And you'll spend 1 day a week on your internship (could be online). You'll also get online classes. That way you'll get to know your classmates and lecturers in person as well as online. Great for the group spirit. And you'll dive straight into the profession through the internship. As soon as government measures are further relaxed, you'll get even more contact hours on campus and possibly also at your internship.
