Students and New Social Work Graduates are important members of our AASW community, for it is you that will inherit the social work legacy and represent the profession in our community.

Message for New Graduates from the Queensland Branch President

AASW Membership

The AASW offers the following membership options for Student and New Graduates -


For students enrolled in an AASW accredited Bachelor of Social Work degree or Master of Social Work (qualifying).

New Graduates

The New Graduate fee is for members renewing or joining within 2 years of completion of their first qualifying Social Work degree. This recognises that new graduates have many expenses to recover in their first few years after graduation and we believe that your continued membership of AASW in these years is important.

AASW Fee Structure

Looking for work

The Horizon Career Centre is an initiative of the Australian Association of Social Workers to provide a forum for employment solutions and career resources.

A Practical Guide for Students and Graduating Practitioners

This Handbook is intended for Social Work students and new graduates of Australia.

In the final chapters this Handbook provides information on accessing the Australian Social Work job market.
