9 Success Stories Ellen Sabo Bachelor of Psychological Science The sky is the limit Learning how people think, feel and behave has always fascinated me. Studying psychology was a way for me to better understand what makes people tick and why they do the things they do. As a member of the university s Psych Society, I have been given the opportunity to network with some great people and I travelled to various exhibitions in Melbourne. I also often attend Psychology Colloquiums which are facilitated by FedUni, where I have learnt about current research and specialist areas. When choosing where I wanted to study, I liked the idea of coming to a regional university and not living in the city. Ballarat is just the right size not big enough to get lost whilst offering all the major shops and services I need. I also liked the idea of small class sizes and not just feeling like a number. In regards to career goals, the sky is the limit for me! I m hoping to continue onto Honours, Masters and upgrade to a Clinical Doctorate. This will give me the capacity to continue in research, which I love, and perform clinical work. I could see myself one day becoming an academic and lecturing all over the world. Some advice to future students (year 12 or older) is that coming back to uni as a mature age student was daunting, but now I am here I wonder what took me so long! It has been great finding like-minded students, with a thirst for knowledge and being able to share ideas with them. The university has given me the opportunity, the support and the room to succeed! 1800 FED UNI federation.edu.au/programfinder 7

15 Success Stories Emma West Bachelor of Arts (Humanities and Social Sciences) I chose to study here after attending an open day information session at Mt Helen. I d already heard good things about this university from other people which made it a really easy decision. The BA program so far has been fantastic, I couldn t ask for anything more. I have been able to follow a variety of my interests in different areas such as psychology, film, literature, history, philosophy and sociology. The student careers and employment service have even helped me plan for my career after graduation. Making the transition to university can definitely be difficult, especially if you re living away from home. It really helps to have a friend or two and O-Week is the perfect opportunity to meet people in the same boat as you! Personally, the university s Mentor Program really helped me get through my first year- the things you learn during the O-Week activities on campus are invaluable. This really is an outstanding institution and I wouldn t want to be anywhere else. My advice to future students would be: don t ever be afraid to ask for help; get involved in the O-Week activities; and learn about all the support services the university has to offer you!

17 Success Stories Melissa Sizeland Bachelor of Arts (Rural Social Welfare) Youth Services Manager BGT Youth Services I completed my degree from and now work at BGT (Ballarat Group Training) as the youth services manager looking after a number of government contracts relating to youth work across the Grampians region. Our core business is working with young people between who are at risk of leaving school early or who have already left school to reengage back into an educational setting, reconnect with family and the community. Mark Lacey Bachelor of Arts (Rural Social Welfare) Client Engagement Officer Centacare Ballarat While studying for my BA in rural social welfare, I gained employment at Ballarat Health Services as one of the first consumer consultants there a kind of a patient advocate position. I worked in that role for 14 years, and in that time won a number of reforms for patients/consumers. In fact, at accreditation in 2010, I gained an outstanding achievement categorisation with my colleague, Jackie Crowe, the family/carer consultant. I was also appointed to be a member of the Victorian Mental Health Reform Council. Since the start of this year, I have been employed at Centacare Ballarat as the client engagement officer, another client advocate position. Thanks for the years of excellent education and training FED UNI federation.edu.au/programfinder 15

I was enrolled at a large metropolitan university and I didn t enjoy it. I was in a class of 500 students; I never met a single lecturer, found it incredibly hard to get assistance and even make friends. The next year I enrolled at the university in Ballarat. At Ballarat I can remember my first lecture; it had about 150 students in it. I looked around and thought where is everyone?, that first year I knew every one of my lecturers personally and they knew me by name. That s why I chose this university because it is a fantastic regional uni and you don t get lost in the crowd. The highlights of my undergraduate degree were definitely the teaching staff and the friends I made. The lecturers were insightful and entertaining, they made me laugh a lot. Another big highlight was getting accepted in to the Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) (Honours) to begin my postgraduate pathway into psychology FED UNI federation.edu.au/programfinder
