Study at VU

Goal: clinical psychologist

Western Chances scholarship and VU Achievement Scholarship help bring Natasha Jones’ long term goal closer.

"I’m in my final year of a Bachelor of Psychological Studies and with the Victoria University Western Chances Scholarship and Achievement Scholarship I’ve been able to buy a new computer, equipment and text books which can be very expensive.

I have cerebral palsy and through VU's disability support I was able to make alternative arrangements like getting a laptop and extra time to do exams.

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. To achieve this I need to do my honours and masters which will take another three years. 

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."
