The School of Social Work offers Advanced field placements in Kochi, India, and London, UK through our International Field Placement Program (IFPP). Students interested in the 2019 IFFP should attend one of the upcoming information meetings. Information meetings are scheduled at the SSW: Wednesday, October 3, 5:15-6:00 in room 3e36.
There will also be a meeting at USG Friday 10/5 12:00-1:00 (room TBD). The 2019 IFPP programs will last 5½ months, beginning in the summer of 2019. While abroad, our students complete their entire Advanced field placements and take two MSW classes in our partnering universities. Classes in India are taught in English. Our students reside in university housing on our partnering campuses. When the 2019 IFPP students return to the SSW or USG for their final semester, spring 2020, they will only need to take their remaining classroom courses, as they will have completed Advanced field. Detailed information and applications will be available at the September and October meetings.
