Rehabilitation Counselling - Courses and careers
Rehabilitation counselling is a dynamic, challenging and rewarding profession that is grounded in human rights, and the value and importance of work. Rehabilitation counsellors are committed to facilitating the independence, integration, and inclusion of people with problems due to social disadvantage, injury and disability in the community.
Our rehabilitation counselling program offers both a Master of Rehabilitation Counselling and Graduate Diploma of Rehabilitation Counselling. Both courses include extensive clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities and draw on knowledge from several fields – psychology, sociology, medicine, psychiatry, education, law and the world of work. Graduates will acquire the knowledge and skills to work in partnership with people who have experienced problems associated with social disadvantage, injury or disability. They are qualified to provide specialist counselling, coordination and vocational services to a variety of people across a range of service settings.
Currently the demand for qualified rehabilitation counsellors is far greater than the supply, which means that many of our students are employed before graduating.
