Welcome to the ADVANCES website

The ADVANCES programme has a new website at https://www.socialworkadvances.aau.dk/, which provides information for intakes in 2020, 2021 and 2022.  You can contact the Programme Team via email info-advances@aau.dk.   

The MA in Advanced Development in Social Work (ADVANCES) is designed to give social workers outstanding levels of practice skills so that they can confidently respond to the vulnerabilities and uncertainties facing societies across the world.

This is an international MA in Social Work programme and students will rotate between university departments in five European countries: Denmark, France, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom.  The 22-month course is explicitly targeted at qualified, experienced social workers from around the world who wish to upgrade their practice skills, especially with a transnational focus.  The top applicants to the course will be considered for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. The ADVANCES Visiting Scholars programme also invites applications for guest lecturers who have considerable teaching or practice experience in international social work.
