    Hi there!
    Im from India, I've received an offer to do a Master of Counselling at Monash University:

    https://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handb...ses/D6003.html

    I was wondering if anyone could guide me about the course and what are the career prospects. I have limited background in psychology. Ive pursued my bachelors in medical biotechnology. Ive always been interested in becoming a counsellor and this course unlike many others doesn't require a psychology background, which is why I applied for it.
    I'm wondering if anyone has experiences or opinions on such a masters program.

    Any help and advice would be really greatly appreciated

    Thanks a lot!

    This is a UK site so you may not get many responses on here. I'm moving this to the international study forum. The main thing to consider is where you want to practice and whether you will get the required qualifications to do so. You may have to re-qualify if you move. Career prospects will depend on a variety of factors so no one can predict those but it is a good idea to find out where grads from your program end up. Counselling is very skills based so while a background in psychology may help it isn't necessary.

    Hey,

    Thanks, and i completely agree with what you're saying. But for some reason, I've been unable to join australian forums. But yeah, ill try to keep digging into it.

    Thank you so much for your input though.
