“I was a hairdresser for almost 10 years and had no academic experience beyond Year 10. When I thought of retraining as a psychologist, many universities told me I was aiming too high. I sought opinions of those in industry and heard Victoria University was well known for its hands-on approach and producing great clinical psychologists.
VU was the only university that considered my workplace experience and not just my academic record.
I love the culture at VU. It’s a student-focused university with high standards, which pushed me to work hard. My next goal is to complete a Masters in Clinical Neuropsychology and undertake a PhD."
