Qualification update

Closed to enrolments from new learners

We are no longer taking enrolments from new learners for OP7400 Bachelor of Social Work.  A new version of the programme will be available later in 2023, and Te Pūkenga is using this opportunity to develop a unified programme that will be offered online and in person at Te Pūkenga campuses.

Please check back on our website in 2023 for information on the new programme or, if you would like to be notified when the new programme is available, please provide your details here.

Re-enrolling learners

If you had already started studying OP7400 Bachelor of Social Work, up to and including 15 November 2022, you can continue to re-enrol in your next course. 

Once the new programme, Te Ata Māhina Bachelor of Social Work, has been approved we will contact you to advise you whether to remain in the current programme or to transition into the new programme. Please be assured that no learners will be disadvantaged in any transition arrangements.

Please note, learners who are studying OP7400 Bachelor of Social Work must complete their last course in the programme no more than 8 years of their first enrolment.

 If you need assistance with a study plan, please contact us.

 

Current learners

Taking a break from study?

If you do not enrol in the programme for two consecutive trimesters you will need to give evidence that you still meet the entry requirements before you can apply for your next course. You will need to provide recent references, complete a new police vet, and having an interview with a member of the social work team.

Your acceptance back into the degree may be provisional for the first trimester. Continued enrolment will be dependent on satisfactory progress and successful completion of the courses studied in this trimester. You must contact social.work@openpolytechnic.ac.nz at least 6 weeks prior to the start date of the trimester you wish to resume study in.
