Country of origin


Nihar Bhosale graduated from our Master of Social Work (Qualifying) in 2017 and now works at Wellways, a leading Australian community care services provider. ‘It’s been a great journey so far,’ says Nihar. ‘The program suited all my needs, and the placements were a huge bonus; they really helped me put theory into practice and develop my communication and networking skills.’

Nihar’s current employment stems from his first 70 day placement in the Community Health Support Services team at Wellways. ‘My focus was working with people with mental health issues, helping them get back on their feet. It was a great opportunity to interact with people from all backgrounds and get to know how the organisation works.

‘My second placement was with Ballarat Community Health, assisting asylum seekers and refugees to settle into society. I’m currently applying for membership of the Australian Association of Social Workers, and I’m excited about developing communities and exploring everything this awesome kangaroo country has to offer.’
