Do you feel the need to help people around you? Do you like spending time with the elderly? Do you enjoy watching over children? Do you like standing up for those that cannot stand up for themselves?

You will learn to work with children and the protections they must be provided in the eyes of the law. You will learn how to provide crisis management and how to work with people in correctional institutions. You will find out how social programs are built, ran and apply to the social groups in need.

From all our study programmes, the social work bachelor studies are the most down to earth option. It requires a lot of empathy and dedication. Taking your studies in English will also help you reach higher level of social care. You will be able to participate in Erasmus+ program and study in Europe as an exchange student, expanding your knowledge of social care practices in other countries. To take full advantage of these studies, you must wield English language at least at B1 level.
