What our students say

Jeanette Van Luyn“UQ provided me with the highest quality education and the best educators, mentors and opportunities to learn and develop my skills as a psychologist. The postgraduate program, although very challenging, provided me with incredible experiences to practice my skills in a range of clinical settings and to learn from highly experienced and effective therapists. The hard work was certainly worth it; a career in psychology is fascinating, challenging and enriching in so many ways, and the sense of satisfaction you gain from making a positive change in peoples’ lives cannot be overestimated.” Jeanette Van Luyn
