social work - advantages and disadvantages?
hi, i would like to study social work at the fh ludwigsburg. I expect a grade between 2.8 and 3.1 in my Abi, can I study with it? and do i need any internships?

the other thing is that a lot of people around me have said that you earn little, that it is difficult to get a university place (or jobs afterwards). and that there are generally many disadvantages.
Money is not that important to me, but how much would you roughly earn?
and can one recommend social work and the subsequent professions?

Yes. But you have to expect some waiting time (probably 2 years). Or you can file a hardship application or file a lawsuit. Then you can do it without waiting. Or you can show a lot of social commitment, which - depending on the university - is usually taken into account when selecting applicants.

It depends on the respective university and the study regulations there. As a rule, a three-month pre-study internship in the social field is required. Community service is usually considered sufficient. If you have completed this, you usually do not need a separate pre-study internship.

Right. At least if you work in the classic social area of ​​fringe group work and are paid by a church / independent agency. In the public sector the pay is better, but in my opinion it is still inadequate for an academic.

I wouldn't see it like that. One finds jobs, only the payment of these is a completely different question ...

In terms of what?

For tax class 1 roughly € 2250 gross. At least at the beginning.

I do not understand the question. Recommend in terms of what?

Re: social work - advantages and disadvantages?
hey, thank you very much for the detailed answers, as they give me some clarity do you have opportunities for advancement? the recommendation refers to the pay and the disadvantages on the jobs, on the earnings etc. however i really want to study it, because with it I do my best and fulfill my little dream with it I only care about money because of whether studying and 13 years of school are worthwhile ^^ of the professional fields, however, it exactly corresponds to my wishes.
