    For the year 5 and 6. From what I have read, you can either do post-grad as research or supervised practical (Is that right?). What I have read is that people are finding it hard to find supervised positions to fulfil the requirements for provisional registration.

    So more what worries me is after honours (or a grad dip).

    I have actually chosen most my electives to be social work core subjects so I wouldn't be that far behind. My alternative is to do a masters.

    I don't know now...I'm confused and a bit worried I have done all this study for nothing. Especially after looking for work and it had a bit about no need to apply if you have a university degree or are currently studying one

    I don't know a lot about the supervision pathway to become a psychologist. I heard it was being phased out? It's usually for people who didn't do well enough in honours to get into postgrad- if you have the grades to get into honours, you will have the grades to get into a masters/PhD.

    I am studying now, law. My original degree straight out of high school was engineering.

    If I could have my time again I'd do both as a double degree from the outset, or a law/commerce double.

    I really loved being a project engineer, but it's not a family friendly career if you only want to work part time, and I can't imagine doing law on its own without the experience/knowledge of another field..

    Commerce would always be a strong industry irrespective of mining booms and down turns.

    I love working with disabled but I can't handle being hands on anymore since working in ages care. You get no say standing up for your rights. Hope that makes sense!! Or clients. I've done one semester at uni in my disability and education also done my EN but no placement because I had a seizure. So some fields I guess I feel are out of my league?

    I was going to do small business management just to get myself studying incase we ever opened a business. And to continue on from my cert 3 business studies. I seem to be a serial studier 😳 is that even a word 😂

    I've just finished a law degree and if I had my time again I'd still choose law - I've loved it. There are far more law graduates than jobs for them, but that's pretty much true of any field these days. Even medicine has its issues with lack of funding for internships.

    Choose something you're passionate about and then do it well - that's my best advice for studying.

    And incorporate work experience as much as you can. If you can't find paid work then volunteering can be incredibly useful for building up contacts and experience that will be a huge help when you graduate.

    I wonder if Occupational therapy, or another therapy such as music, art etc etc. Might be of use to you. Theres a strong call for lifestyle based therapies, especially in the aged community.

    I agree, 5 years ago they were crying out for nursing staff (DH is an RN) and now we know nurses who have been unable to get jobs in Sydney for 6 + plus months. It is getting pretty scary at the moment.
