I’ve just found out you can apply for VET Fee help for diploma courses, not just degrees. I need to wait until Feb 2017, to start an on campus degree Uni course, for various reasons.
So, a counselling diploma in the gap next year, would be useful and helpful and keep me busy 🙂
So contacting ACAP about the VET Fee help part, just to make sure I would be eligible. I’m itching to start studying and this may be a great route, a diploma, prior to the degree in either counselling or psychology – whichever I decide upon.
Emailed for info.
Update, I’ve already checked and I am eligible for the VET FEE help, so I’m applying for the course, to commence Feb 2016.
After that, I will start a 3 year Bachelor of Psychology/Social Sciences/Counselling (not sure which yet), and then will need to continue on with further post grad study towards a Ph.D. And all the needed supervision work.
So, I’m signing myself up for potentially 7+ years of study….
That’s not at all overwhelming…. lol!
