The B.S.S. is a professional degree designed for students who wish to become social workers and who believe they have the personal attributes and motivation for social work. This degree combines an academic social science degree with professional social work training. B.S.S. degree graduates are eligible to apply for registration with CORU (Irish Social Work Registration Board) and, once registered, can access employment in a wide range of social work posts in Ireland. Graduates can also apply for registration in the UK and internationally.
Social work is a profession concerned with supporting and helping people in a variety of situations and settings. People who use social work services include young and adult offenders, children, families, older people, people with mental and physical illness and disability, homeless people, unemployed people, ethnic groups, Travellers, and people with drug and alcohol problems. Ultimately, social work aims to support people to live more successfully, within their communities, by helping them to find solutions to their problems.
"Ireland bases its tuition rates on residence (3 of the last 5 years living in the EU) despite whether you're an EU citizen or not. In other words, only those who have resided in an EU country 3 of the last 5 years are eligible for the discounted rates."
