In the Sosu Class you will hear about the interaction between the professional social- and health helpers /assistants and patients, handicapped and old people.
You will experience the social services and health programs in Denmark, both in theory and practically – for example by visiting some Danish Social institutions.
In respect of health, the focus is on the Danish welfare system, theoretical social work, moving- and lifting techniques.
Social Science is important and the tuition covers – among other things – democracy, social studies, legislation and a historical account of the development and construction of the Danish welfare society.
The Sosu Class is popular with Japanese students who are very interested in the Danish welfare and in the social and health systems. But the class is, of course, open to everybody.
Tuition is in English.
