Bachelor of Social Work - Requirements
You are best prepared for university level courses with five 30-level high school courses.
You may start university transfer at Lakeland with the highest level grade 12 English. For example, in Alberta ELA 30-1 or in Saskatchewan ELA A30 or B30. Check subject equivalencies in other provinces.
Check the particular university for the prerequisites in other high school courses.
Volunteer and work hours
Work and volunteer hours in a related field are part of the application process in the transfer routes to University of Calgary, University of Regina & MacEwan University social work programs.
Start building connections early so you can fulfil the required hours and build strong references. This is especially important if you plan to go into the program from high school.
You will be competing against mature students who may have many years of life, work and volunteer experience. So you need to start in high school and continue during your pre-professional year to add to your experience.
