The course content and our pedagogy focus on developing the mix of applied skills and attributes that are increasingly recognised as essential to success in the contemporary economy. Our content is delivered flexibly in a blended format, which is a mixture of
face-to-face workshops and webinars. Please note that due
to Covid-19 we are currently only working through webinars,
until the health advice changes.

Meanwhile in our course development lab, we have a small
team working on some new courses in the Business and
Management area. We plan to take advantage of some of
the crucial soft skills taught in the EFT curriculum that
are increasingly a prerequisite for success in the global
economy.

So, please enjoy exploring our site and let us know
if we can help you further.

The Banksia team look forward to meeting
you soon!

Why study at Banksia?

Banksia is private higher education provider offering accredited postgraduate courses in Emotion Focused Therapy. We operate with high levels of academic integrity and excellence.

Our small class sizes allow for a personalised approach and a level of learning support not common in higher education. There is plenty of opportunity in our workshop/webinar learning environment for everyone to get involved in the discussion and to debate issues in a secure, respectful and safe way.

Our teaching staff have professional experience in the subjects they teach and are current in their knowledge of relevant trends.

We recognise that sometimes the student journey can be confusing and road is not always straight, that’s why we have support staff on hand to deal with any bumps in the road and to offer the best advice we can.
Many of the degree subjects can be taken as part of a CPD Program, allowing those interested to refresh or extend their knowledge. As well as being led by an experienced facilitator, participants often find enormous value in the networks which emerge from taking part in the CPD Program.

We, at Banksia, look forward to inspiring and supporting your learning and professional success.

Student
Success

At Banksia we want all of our students to succeed whether you are studying a degree course or taking a CPD subject. This starts from when you initially think about studying, as we work with you to ensure you have made the best choice to meet your needs, on to getting started on your first subject and all the way through your learning journey until graduation! Even then we hope you will stay in touch and perhaps help support the learners who come after you with professional practice insights.
On that journey we can provide you with the appropriate learning resources and services to support you and your study ambitions. We recognise that, for some, balancing life, work and study can be a challenge but with our flexible delivery approach and a flexible timetable we can work with you to find a solution when life gets uncertain. There is rarely a study related problem that can’t be solved, just contact our team to discuss what can be done.
