Bachelor of Psychological Sciences
For Issy, high school was a constant struggle for motivation, but she didn’t let her experience hold her back from uni.
“My high school experience wasn’t a completely academic one. I didn’t get the score I was after in year 12. The great thing about OUA was that I was able to enrol in single subjects. Once I passed those, I was eligible to apply for my degree.”
Completing a few uni subjects not only qualified Issy for entry into a full degree, they also exposed her to a range of interesting study areas, such as communications, gender studies, and psychology – which eventually became her focus and passion. Now Issy is on her way to achieving her career dream, becoming a clinical psychologist.
