Field practice placement

Field practice placements are an integral part of the curriculum. It is a laboratory module, taught over two academic semesters in the fourth year of studies and includes:

(1) the Field Practice Placement: Students are placed in Social Services of the private, public or wider public sector that the Department is in collaboration, and these are based exclusively in the region of Attica. It takes place 4 days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) and it is full time and

(2) the Supervision that takes place at the Department’s premises once per week and lasts 3 hours.


Erasmus students can participate in these courses as they can be placed in an organization with an English-speaking social worker instructor as well as be offered group supervision in English by a faculty member of the Department.
