Enrolments open for postgraduate study with violence pathway

Enrolments open for postgraduate study with violence pathway

*from the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

Enrolments are now open for postgraduate study at the University of Auckland with a pathway in violence. This is being offered for the first time in 2016, commencing with a Postgraduate Certificate.

This postgraduate development results from collaboration between the School of Population Health (Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences) and the School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work (Faculty of Education and Social Work). Recognising a need for formal postgraduate education in violence studies, courses have been developed to address the recognised core and advanced competency requirements for professionals working in this demanding field.

The first stage of the programme is undertaken through enrolment in a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Sciences (PGCertHSc), and consists of two 30 points courses, one taken in each semester. Each course taught over three, 2-days blocks in Auckland.

The PGCertHSc qualification was chosen as an initial qualification because applicants can undertake this programme without an undergraduate degree, as long as they have a recognised health qualification and appropriate experience. Alternatively, appropriately qualified applicants can enter into the Postgraduate Diploma in Social Work or in Health Sciences. In some cases students may enter directly into a Masters degree.

For more information, download the flyers for the course description and further options.
