Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling graduates will develop a broad range of skills that prepare graduates for employment in:  

  • Administration 
  • Advertising 
  • Business 
  • Community services (e.g., child protection) 
  • Counselling 
  • Government and policy development 
  • Human rights and advocacy 
  • Media 
  • Public relations 
  • Publishing 
  • Research 
  • And many more! 

Upon receiving accreditation by PACFA, graduates will be eligible to apply for PACFA membership, which in turn enables registration as a counsellor with the Australian Register of Counselling and Psychotherapists (ARCAP). 

Graduates may also apply to study the Graduate Diploma or Masters of Counselling & Psychotherapy, to take their counselling skills to the next level. 

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 a 70 average in the psychology major (PSY) units of the program will be eligible for automatic entry to the Cairnmillar Institute’s Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) in the next academic intake, should they choose to apply.
