Additional Information


When I received the news that MCKL is offering Diploma in Social Work, I looked at the syllabus and timetable and it was well-rounded. It covered most aspects of social work; psychology, sociology, law and policy and working with the target community (internships). It also fit my criteria of not having to take a break off my work commitment because the classes were during the weekends.

I always wanted to help in social work but at times I feel incapable because I do not know what the right approaches are. After joining DSW@MCKL, it helped me to be professional when doing social work, non-judgmental, more competent and respectful at the same time.

Diploma in Social Work, MCKL
MCKL’s programme has helped me look at social work from a wider perspective. Prior to this, I solely depended on my limited experience and basic internal training skill. The course has given me the ability to improve my practice at every level, right from initial contact, assessment, case planning, residential care, community-based recovery and beyond.

Diploma in Social Work, MCKL
The whole academic and practicum of this course has been carefully crafted to give a holistic insight into the social work worldview. It covers as many subjects as possible to give us an overall core of what Social Work is all about. The two internship exposures were tremendously priceless as well. It is not only about getting more knowledge, values and skills, but also the ability to translate what we learned into our workplace.
