Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling graduates will develop a broad range of important tertiary education skills that prepare graduates for employment in administration, advertising, business, community services (e.g., child protection), counselling, government, human rights, media, policy development, public relationship, publishing, research, and more.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling will be eligible to apply for membership to the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), which in turn enables registration as a counsellor with the Australian Register of Counselling and Psychotherapists (ARCAP).

Graduates will also be able to register as a counsellor with PACFA. Graduates who go on to study a Master of Counselling & Psychotherapy or Graduate Diploma of Counselling & Psychotherapy will then also be eligible for registration as a psychotherapist with the ACA or PACFA.

Graduates will also be eligible to apply for further study under an APAC accredited 4th year program, such as the Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) to continue a study pathway towards general registration as a psychologist. Note: completion of this degree alone is not sufficient for registration with AHPRA as a psychologist. Additional study will be required. Students who obtain an 70 average in the psychology major (PSY) units of the program will be eligible for automatic entry to the Cairnmillar Institute Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) in the next academic intake should they choose to apply.
