“The Cairnmillar Institute’s Master of Clinical Psychology (Post Registration) course offered exactly what I needed. I had already heard great things about the institute, and I can honestly not speak highly enough of them.”

"I have had nothing but positive experiences so far in my time at Cairnmillar. From the beginning every staff member I have met has been so lovely and supportive. The lecturers in the Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling are all incredibly passionate about what they teach and have always been very approachable when I need anything. I am so happy with my decision to study at Cairnmillar."
