Bachelor of Psychology

SLV.Global initiatives provide a transformative experience that facilitates professional development and fosters personal growth. My mental-health placement in Sri Lanka enabled a unique opportunity for practical application of academic knowledge within a real-world context. This enhanced my communication skills, conflict-resolution and problem-solving capacities, whilst increasing flexibility amongst constantly changing circumstances and diverse client demands.

It also heightened my pre-existing appreciation of cross-cultural diversity and provided an unparalleled insight into psychological treatment within a different cultural context. As a result, my professional capacities have been enhanced, whilst my personal development has been enriched, allowing me to become a truly global citizen.
