The University of Tasmania has provided an environment I feel supported in. Lecturers make time for you and try to get to know who you are as a person.
Kaela has found her student experience at the University of Tasmania to have helped her prepare for a future career as a counsellor. A highlight of her experience as an undergraduate student leading up to postgraduate studies was the diversity of study options available. “While studying a Bachelor of Arts I was able to diversify and select a major in behavioural science. It was good to be able to pick and choose things I was interested in studying. This allowed flexibility while focusing on behavioural science and psychology in general.”
“When I was in my third year of study I realised I had a passion for roles in counselling. This is when I decided to consider enrolling in the Graduate Diploma in Counselling (M6I). I felt this course would be great, allowing me to focus on my passion. It will also improve my job prospects as the course is accredited with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA).”
An on campus student, Kaela explains the benefits to studying the Graduate Diploma in Counselling at Sandy Bay, Hobart. “Studying on campus is fantastic as you have all the facilities near to you which make it easier to progress with your assignments and group tasks. I like to keep a good routine and knowing everything I need is here makes things easier.”
“The University of Tasmania has provided an environment I feel supported in. Lecturer’s make time for you and try to get to know who you are as a person. I also enjoy living and studying in Tasmania. It is a really beautiful place. Everything is close. The beach, shops and walking tracks, all a short distance away.”
“To me, the word ‘Health’ means finding a true balance between physical requirements, dietary and mental health. Once I complete my studies I plan to work with high school aged children between 12 and 18 years old. I believe in helping those younger than me to guide them and make a positive difference in their lives, so that they have a better quality of life when they are older.”
