Our Vision

At the School of Educational Psychology and Counselling, we foster communities where people of all ages can thrive, now and in the future.

We lead the way by forging community partnerships, and we educate the next generation of psychologists, counsellors, early childhood educators, teachers and allied health professionals.

We ignite research insights and inspire our people to support all children to flourish in their academic, social and emotional development.

Our efforts bring together communities where everyone can reach their full potential, be included, and feel like they belong.

Through our work we build the foundation of lifelong wellbeing. We do this through:

  • Educating the next generation: As Australia’s leading institution for education, we equip early childhood educators, psychologists and counsellors with the expertise to enrich their communities and build successful, fulfilling careers.
  • Cultivating cutting-edge research: We’re expanding our academic excellence at the intersection of learning, behaviour, development and mental health - to build an integrated, holistic framework.
  • Bridging the gap between research and practice: Beyond the lecture room, our students and staff apply theory in evidence-based practice, enhancing their development with the Krongold Clinic and with our educational, government and industry partners.
  • Connecting communities, families, schools, early childhood services and industry: We forge authentic partnerships to amplify our impact. It’s how we foster wellbeing and inclusion throughout the broader community.

We are the School of Educational Psychology and Counselling and we create exceptional learning and development outcomes – for our students, our staff and the communities we support.
