“Studying Social Work at this university was without a doubt the best decision I have made in my life. I am surrounded by lecturers who care about and help students on a daily basis by sharing their experiences, which encourage us to want to be more and to achieve more.
I am becoming increasingly aware of the countless social problems that exist in the world and of the need to act in order to achieve change and social justice for each and every one. It is important to realise that intuition and sensitivity to these social problems are not enough; that it is also necessary to learn the best techniques and methodologies, which we are taught in this degree, to provide the best solutions to the varied situations that we will be faced with.
To this end, I have also progressively gained a greater sense of the complexity of the Individual as a human being and of the value that he or she has in a way that is so particular to him or herself. It is this great value that I hope to be able to build upon in my actions as a future social worker, as someone who will work for and with others. I don’t believe I can save or change the world, but I believe I can change and transform someone else’s world. And that’s what gives me enormous encouragement to pursue what I believe to be my vocation!”
