SO…. I have been researching.. what I am thinking of studying..

and it looks like its 6 years to be a registered psychologist and one to 3 years study to be a specialist in autism diagnosis..

I can go to Griffith and do it part time for a year.

Or online with Western Australia three years.

I have… to work out what certification I want to achieve… the behavioural studies bachelor with a major in psychology will not let me work with clients.. and I want to work with clients so.. its back to USC and their bachelor in psychology.. which is a registered course with APAAC.

Is it worth it..? 7 years of study and even more if I want a Masters and even then am I up to it.

Am I intelligent enough to understand the coursework.. ? I have no idea…

I left school after year 10 because it was so boring..

I am not sure having a passion for helping others and especially with helping people with autism is enough of a passion to get through all that coursework..

I know I have the determination but not sure about the drive..

There are a couple of options I can go to see whether I could handle university life.

One – I do a certificate of university studies which will get me in the door and familiar with university and what is expected in the coursework


Two – I go through TTP which is where you do courses that are an introduction to what you want to learn .. sort of like bridging courses.

But neither will go towards a OP..

Plus if I do option One it is an extra $9000

Whereby option Two I would have to do the subjects anyway.. and I still pay..

I guess it depends on what I believe I can understand and do..

Do I have the capacity to go straight into a bachelor..?

Honestly .. No I dont..

which means I pay the extra $9000 for it.. and owe a ton of money at the end..

which IM going to do anyway.

now how much does the bachelor of psychology with honours going to cost?

I am 47 years old, divorced a long time ago.. with abusive ex's in my past... I have three children in their early twenties who may or may not have Aspergers. I am self diagnosed and in the future when I can I would like to be officially diagnosed. I just don't have any money to spare atm. I am on Disability for having Multiple Personality Disorder. I was diagnosed officially in 2012. I knew about my personalities from when I was 31. Finding out I am probably on the spectrum has in some ways given me a life jacket and simultaneously felt like someone is pushing me under..... This is just my thoughts put into words.
