Do you already have an undergraduate degree and are you interested in gaining a counselling qualification? USQ's Master of Counselling (Foundations of Practice) is designed to provide foundational knowledge and skills required for counselling practice. During this degree you will study counselling frameworks, professional practice and ethics, and counselling assessment and interventions. The knowledge gained from this specialisation is transferable across nursing, psychology, teaching, welfare, human services or allied health practices.
While study is mainly external, you will be required to attend mandatory residential schools at USQ Ipswich campus associated with four designated courses to meet the required number of hours of face-to-face instruction and ensure you have the best possible skills preparation.
Entry into the Master of Counselling programs (with the exception of the Advanced Practice) is via the Graduate Diploma of Counselling.
The Master of Counselling is designed to address all of the training standards in the PACFA Training Standards 2014.
