I’d definitely recommend Victoria University and the course I’m doing. The lecturers and tutors are good and it’s a lot more student-oriented than other universities. I’m currently on placement at Footscray Hospital for two hours a week helping to counsel people in the oncology ward and long term my goal is to be a registered clinical psychologist.
