Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology

I volunteered in December 2016 for the 5 week program in Sri Lanka, and I can honestly say it was amazing. I've learnt so much from my experience in Sri Lanka. Aside from the amazing culture and food the people become your family. Having completed my degree in psychology I was apprehensive about the teaching and special needs aspects of the placement, however I loved these and grew so much by the end of the placement. As we did our placement over the holiday period we didn't get as much time at projects so I would recommend doing at least 6 weeks. Especially if you want enough weekend time to do cultural and beach trips. If you are considering a placement during or following the completion of your psychology course, I would highly recommend SLV.Global!
