Most students undertaking postgraduate study in social work are in full-time practice and study part-time.
Massey is the only university in New Zealand that offers post-qualifying social work courses by distance, so you can study wherever you like, to fit in with your other commitments. This certificate is taught online and some courses have contact workshops.
You'll learn from highly experienced academics and professional social workers.
There is always plenty of help at hand. Along with contact with your lecturers, learning consultants in the Centre for Teaching and Learning are available to support your study and academic writing skills. Each library has a subject librarian who supports you on campus or at a distance.
You'll already be employed as a social worker. The Postgraduate Certificate in Social Work will aid your professional development as a specialist in professional areas of social work practice.
