Careers in Psychology

If you love psychology and aim to complete a degree there are many options including:

  • Clinical psychologist
  • Counselling psychologist
  • Neuropsychology
  • Marketing psychology
  • Educational psychologist
  • Forensic psychologist
  • Further education teacher
  • Health psychologist
  • High intensity therapist
  • Occupational psychologist

However not all applications of psychology require a degree, many of our students take a certificate course in psychology with us to gap fill their existing qualifications, gain a deeper understanding of psychology in application to their existing degree, or just want to understand the people around them. We also get many students enrolling who are using our psychology courses as stepping stones to a degree. They often want to go on and do further study with a Bachelor of Psychology but either don't feel ready or just can't manage the time and cost.

Why Study Psychology Online?

Most of our students have busy lives but still want to focus on their dreams, work on improving their skills or just have a love of writing. But one thing they have in common is that they need the flexibility of online study that CourseStream delivers. Our online courses are of course flexible in nature, but what you get when studying with CourseStream, is our flexibility with time.

Need a study break due to family commitments, no problem we can help. Work away? Sure, just let us know because we'll do what we can to make sure your study works for you. It's crazy to have an online course and not offer this type of flexibility. So let us help you get on with your studies!
