Psychologist

Psychologist

As a psychologist, you should have a genuine interest in people and human behaviour. You will provide treatment, often in the form of counselling, to reduce distress and behavioural and psychological problems. To become a qualified psychologist you’ll need to study for six years. This consists of three years focusing on psychology, an additional research-based year, followed by two years of supervised practical experience. One option is the Bachelor of Psychology, or you could consider one of the many other degrees that offer
psychology as a major, and then apply for the honours year.

Social worker

Social worker

Social workers help people to deal with personal and social problems, either directly or by planning and carrying out community programs that benefit groups of people. As a social worker you will have a strong commitment to social justice, an ability to identify with other people’s problems, and the emotional maturity to help them find workable solutions. The Bachelor of Social Work, or combined Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Social Work, is your pathway to this career. You will then be able to specialise in fields such as family, youth and child welfare, disability services, aged care and disabilities, and mental health services.
