Applicants to the BSW Distance Delivery initiative must meet all 3 requirements to be admitted into the program.

  2. Residency outside the City of Winnipeg.
  3. A minimum of one year of work experience, equivalent to 1750 hours, within the last five years, as of the application deadline in the social services field.

*Please Note:
Under The Workers Compensation Act (Manitoba), students of the University of Manitoba who are engaged in a field practicum as a required part of their program are generally covered for injuries sustained in the course of and arising out of the practicum in accordance with and subject to the provisions of The Workers Compensation Act. However, where the practicum takes place outside of Manitoba, and the student is not a Manitoba resident, workers compensation coverage may not be extended, based on the provisions of The Workers Compensation Act. The Workers Compensation Board will not make advance rulings in these types of cases.

Therefore, students who are not Manitoba residents and are trying to arrange a practicum outside Manitoba may experience difficulties or be denied a placement because the University is not able to guarantee that workers compensation coverage will be extended. Alternative arrangements can sometimes be made to accommodate such practicums, but will have to be done on a case by case basis. Students are encouraged to contact the Field Education Coordinator at the earliest opportunity to determine if any such alternative arrangements are possible.
