2023-11-17 Lüneburg. The part-time Bachelor's degree programme in Social Work at the Professional School of the Leuphana University Lüneburg was previously only open to nursery school teachers. A new entry-level course now offers extended access to other educational professions. Social assistants, curative education nurses, occupational therapists and people with other relevant qualifications in the social sector can take advantage of this highly sought-after study opportunity after successfully completing the course. An online information event will take place on 23 November 2023 at 5.30 pm.

The six-month course, which is mainly offered online, covers the topics of social and intellectual history of social work, introduction to pedagogy and introduction to social and developmental psychology. Successful completion of the introductory course and proof of three years of professional experience are prerequisites for applying for a place on the programme. A-levels or an entrance qualification for universities are not required. The entry-level course begins in April of the following year. The earliest possible start date is in October.
