Bachelor of Arts is the core academic program at St. Thomas University and as I wanted to pursue Post-degree Bachelor in social work, I found this university significant. I have checked about the course on the University Website and come to know that it offers a direct field placement and social action field placement that provides first-hand experience in practical social work. The university also provides the course in the English language. I had a cumulative GPA of 4.0 in my Bachelor in social work and had the experience to work as a social-work volunteer, I applied for the course through the online portal. The course is very selective, so I had prepared a strong resume and submitted the personal-statement form to reason out why I want to pursue this course. Three letters of reference and an interview were also necessary. Also, proof of English language proficiency was required for international students. The application fee was $55 (non-refundable).
The course of Post-degree BSW is mainly designed for graduate students, who have an undergraduate degree in the liberal arts and who are familiar with the extensive field of social work. The course curriculum intensively focuses on creating a generic practice framework for candidates so that they can deliver services to various client constituencies at a level of competence suitable for the beginning of the practice. The enrolment in this course is very limited, it is an intensive program with 60-credit hour continuing for 15-months. It builds on your previous undergraduate education and leads to the professional BSW credential.
As an international student, I had to take IELTS, in which I scored 7.0. A bachelor's degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 was required in the most recent 60 credit hours. The selection procedure for this course is based on weight given on five criteria- CGPA on the program (30%), personal statement (20%), interview (20%), experience (20%), and social problem test (10%).
Tuition fees for Post degree BSW are $9563 for Canadian students and $19605 for international students. There are a few scholarships available for international students.
