Undergrad psychology is not designed to prepare you immediately for the job market which is why I said 'okay' for helping me find a job. What they do prepare you for is post grad study to go on to gain registration as a psychologist, and QUT offered more than adequate preparation.

Some aspects were poorly organized and it was extremely theory based with only one subject on practical job application skills. There is great room for improvement there. That being said some subjects were fantastic when run by passionate lecturers.

The course prepares you to be a psychology researcher than a clinician. Very difficult degree.

I've attempted to complete further studies but am currently stuck between my honours and masters. There's no options for me in the meantime, and there was no help for me career wise in this degree. I understand that part of this is due to the strict regulations to be registered as a Psychologist (which is outside QUT's power) but more assistance on what else we could do, considering only 1-2% of people end up being chosen for masters, should have been made more of a priority.

It was an engaging course, very interesting, and a good starting point for a career in psychology. The lecturers/tutors were mostly very supportive. It was a pleasure attending QUT.

While the course contained all relevant theory and appropriate knowledge was gained, I feel the lack of practical content made finding a job afterwards difficult. Anyone hoping to find a job after completing this degree should engage in volunteer work or gain other practical experience on top of the degree.

It was wasting time and money . It looked like to me uni was just interested in money. Hard to find job.

The course was reasonably well structured, however as a mature age student and working professional, I realised that University does not resemble real world experiences. There needs to be some changes and additions in the curriculum for younger students to obtain hands on experience.....this course provides no opportunity.

The course itself was interesting and content heavy, particularly the last aspects of behavioural science, however if you’re looking for balanced theory and practical work, this course is not for you.
