Higher Education Video Testimonials
Video Testimonial - Michael Fensbo


"Residential schools are really interesting. Even though you have studied all through the semester, you still have your own inhibitions and fear that you haven’t actually grasped the content... and then when you get there you realise that everyone in the class is in a similar position to you, with the same sort of fears… you are then able to put all the pieces together and everything you’ve gained knowledge over, and realise that you really have a handle on it."


"Studying with AIPC is really good because of the flexibility… it is a very practical and specific course tailored for counselling, to give you all practical skills you need to be successful when you do embark in your career."

"I am a single parent and I have taken the full study load. Having the third semester is very helpful because you can bring it down [the workload] a little bit and not experience too much pressure."


"In found interacting with other students extremely beneficial... you learn a lot from the other students who are already actually in the field and have done the Diploma."


"If you are thinking about studying a Counselling degree I would definitely go through AIPC. I think they have helped nurture me. It is easy to keep going – it is harder at the start, but you will find it easier as you go through, and it is really rewarding."

"I really enjoy the degree because it has allowed me to study at home. Having children at home, I have been able to work around what I have to do. It has given me a lot of flexibility."


"I thought it really important to come to residential schools. We [students] learn so much from each other in the classroom, and also from the lecturer who is great. It is a great experience."


"I started doing the Diploma. All this learning has been so great. It is really preparing me for the work I am looking at doing in mental health."

"The tutors are wonderful. If you have an issue, they will help you find the solution."


"When I started, my mind tended to go to... "I'm too old for that"... "I'm too old to study"... "I'm too old to get that sort of position"... but you are never too old. There are a lot of opportunities out there to learn what we need to learn as counsellors. And that's a huge role to play in the community... to be able to help others work through their issues."

"AIPC is good because it is not restricted to just being in Australia. I am actually located in Malaysia – I fly in for residential schools and then fly out again."


"The context of the education and the content of it is actually equivalent to a traditional college. I looked at a lot of content and course materials from different universities, and it matches."


"It helps that some of the lecturers actually send us reminders... a weekly reminder to keep us updated on what's next to study... I specifically like that... it keeps me on track."



Video Testimonial - Jenny Scott


"Although it was a counselling course, I did learn a lot of things about myself and things that I didn’t think would be that helpful to me... but they have been very helpful in my own life. In the work environment, I have found that this counselling degree opens doors very much in the public sector and the private sector."


"It is also very convenient being distance education because I can sit down at night, when everyone has stopped talking, and no one is calling me, and the children are in bed... and study."


"If at times over those 18 months I found myself losing focus a little bit, I have been able to talk to either the lecturer or many times other students. We've actually got together on Skype and have been able to talk to each other."
