Bachelor of Counselling
This program is designed for students interested in working hands-on with clients who are experiencing difficulties in meeting the demands of their day-today life. Students will learn about the key counseling frameworks and practical approaches for working with clients to help them overcome their personal difficulties. One major focus of this degree is on presenting counseling as a person-centered profession designed to explore and create positive changes in client difficulties. Teaching centers on a problem-focused model and students will receive supervised counselling experience during the completion of a practicum subject.
The Bachelor of Counselling qualifies students for employment as hands-on practitioners in hospitals, government departments (e.g. child protection), specialist intervention programs (e.g. drug rehabilitation), social welfare agencies, independent schools and as private consultants.
Successful completion of Year 12 or equivalent, Bond College Certificate.
In addition to the general University entry requirements the language requirement is – English: IELTS 6.5, TOEFL570 (TWE5.0).
Work Experience & Internships
Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree.
This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
Most students undertake four subjects per semester (equivalent to 40 credit points). You may, however, enrol in fewer subjects and extend your degree over a longer period.
Bond's Teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, computer labs and industry projects.
Students can combine this degree with any other undergraduate degree at Bond (except Medicine) to suit their professional and personal interests. Bond's three-semester academic year allows students to complete two degrees in the same time it would take to complete just one degree at other universities (dependant upon degree combination).
