Theres only one course that qualifies you to be a social worker
Bachelor in Social Studies with Honours in Trinity.
Its 490 points.
There is another course in UCC but its only for mature students.
If you dont think you can get 490 points then you can do any Social Studies undergrad course and do a 2 year postgrad masters in UCC or UCD.
So do a any Social science course like these ones-
Social science Maynooth - 385 points
UCC - 360 points
Then when you finish your degree you do any of these masters -
