For the girls there are three hostels closeby run by the Catholic Nuns and there are many good private hostels closeby. The boys either stay in private boys hostels closeby or join together and stay in rented houses. 


Is there bus facility?

No, but the college is just behind Mogappair bus terminus and there are very frequent buses from other parts of the city.


Will language be a barrier for field work for non Tamils?

We will help the non Tamils by Tamil tuition and by pairing them with Tamil speaking students for the field work


Why do you insist on passport?

It is preferable. We sometimes organise International educatiional tour for the students in the second year. It is not a must anyway


Can we change the specilizaiton in between?

Usually no, you can not. Once you have agreed and signed for the speclization alloted to you by the department during the admission you can not change it. However the department is flexible. 


Why should I become a member of Professional Social Workers Association?

PSWA organises very useful programmes for the students regularly, sometimes in our own college. Membership in PSWA is a must to work in most most of the other countries. Seniority has its own advantage in getting employed in other countries.
