Compulsory Workshops / Synchronous Sessions

Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MCouns&PsychTh)


The Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy is offered in blended delivery mode with eight weeks of online teaching and four weeks of workshops delivered intensively on Fridays/Saturdays. The 2014 Training Standards of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) requires that postgraduate students attend 200 hours of person-to-person training in counselling and/or psychotherapy. The Masters course meets these requirements via its blended learning model by providing students with 14 hours (2 days) of compulsory on campus workshops and 4 hours of compulsory online synchronous sessions within each coursework unit. Please note, the unit, Advanced Placement and Supervision has no workshop requirement as students attend online via Blackboard Collaborate on a fortnightly basis.

The schedule for workshops and online synchronous sessions for units taken by the blended delivery mode can be found on the School of Counselling Class Timetables page.

* Please note that on campus components will not necessarily be offered at all locations in each term. This means that interstate travel may be required for some units over the duration of the course.

* Where it is intended to deliver a particular unit on a specific campus, it should be noted that this is dependent on enrolment numbers. Where a campus has insufficient numbers, the on-campus component may be delivered at another campus.
