Course description:

Social work has a long history at the Inter-University Centre (IUC) in Dubrovnik. The Centre provides a post-graduate level set of social work courses for social work professors, and students, but also practitioners and service-users.

The courses provide an excellent opportunity to discuss contemporary issues in social work, while in a stunning environment and with good people.

In contrast, with more impersonal conferences and congresses, spending a week in the company of other engaged people enables in-depth dialogue and discourse, whilst facilitating the development of productive and collaborative relationships.

Participants are encouraged to contribute either in the form of a paper, workshop or any other appropriate means of presenting.

The courses are conducted over five days, with morning and afternoon sessions. Their pattern is flexible and will be collaboratively determined at the outset of a symposium.

The programme is offered at postgraduate level. Advanced, highly motivated undergraduate students are accepted with at least one letter of reference. The language of the school is English.

Those interested in taking any of the courses may register with the IUC secretariat, school organising director, course organising director and/or any of the course directors by providing name, address, academic standing and affiliation.

Applications for admission to a course should be sent to the organising course director and to the IUC secretariat in Dubrovnik. The course directors decide on admission.

ECTS requirements
Two ECTS are awarded for participation, five ECTS for active participation (slides or abstract), ten ECTS for active participation and a published report, and fifteen ECTS for active participation and a published and reviewed academic article. ECTS are awarded and certified by course directors. However, it is the participants’ responsibility to make arrangements with their home establishment for validation of the credits awarded if such an arrangement does not already exist.
