How to choose the right course for you

How to choose the right course for you

With so many courses and career options available,
how do you choose the right course and career for you?



Deciding what to study can be an incredibly overwhelming process. With so many options available for both careers and courses, how can you make a decision on what is right for you?

At the end of the day – any choice you make is better than no choice at all. 

“Maturity is when you stop complaining and making excuses, and start making changes.”

― Roy T. Bennett, ‘The Light in the Heart’.

Think about it like this: every month you wait to make a decision on what to study is one extra month until you can graduate and find meaningful, rewarding employment.

What matters most when deciding what to study isn’t the specifics of the course you decide to enrol in. What matters most is that you are moving in the right direction.

For example: Are you interested in studying a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), but not quite yet ready to commit to a 4 year university course? Enrol instead in TrainSmart Australia’s 12 month CHC53315 Diploma of Mental Health course, and you can be qualified and job-ready within only 12 months.

If you decide you’d like to pursue the Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) after graduating and working in the Health and Community Services industry, we can help. 

TrainSmart Australia has a number of advanced standing agreements in place with universities across Australia which guarantee our students entry and credit transfer upon completion of our courses.

So remember: Aim for progress, not perfection, and you may find yourself taking larger, faster strides into a career that better suits your passions, interests and experiences.
