Introduction to the Virtual Classroom and the new group of students starts 5 October 2009. The ordinary programme for the new courses in Social Work in Europe starts 12 October 2009.  
Admission and fee:
Total amount of students that will receive study place in this course are 85students.
Depending on the number of applications we might need to limit the admission by taking the following considerations:

  • Priority is given to students from the VIRCLASS Consortium partner institutions. The study is free.
  • 10 study places are dedicated social work students from East-European countries/partners from the SW-VirCamp project. Scholarships can be applied.
  • Professional social workers or students from other institutions than mentioned above will have to pay for the courses 1200 EURO (15 ECTS credits).

    To create a best possible learning environment we would like to have a mixed international group of students, with good enough English language skills, a mixed gender group and students at different educational level, both professionals and BA/MA students.
The educational programme is based on a BA level.
