The Australian Association of Social Workers contemplates a certain code of ethics that underlines the important role of the Australian Association in promoting and advocating social justice. Fatima has to work for six months without any payment in the companies which will have a severe impact on her financial requirements and I will not be able to pay her rent on time.

Practical knowledge is significant yet theoretical and attending classes is more significant to develop concepts that can be hampered due to tough placement schedules offered by the company.
Legislative compliances can be addressed for relaxing the visa requirements of international students. For instance, requirements like international...
