In 2003 the Department of Social Work from an Australian University embarked on the delivery of an offshore educational programme in collaboration with an offshore agent. While there were compelling reasons according to the University mission statement for undertaking this venture, it soon became evident that the mission statement reasons about the merits of international education offered little guidance for the reality of providing an educational programme specifically targeted at an offshore audience. There are dilemmas about a range of pedagogical issues as well as inherent tensions from the perspective of offering a professional degree. This paper will highlight some of these issues with a view outlining some of the learning to date.
