I successfully completed the Military PTSD Program at Toowong Private Hospital in 2014, then set about applying to the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) for entry into studies at the Australian Catholic University at the Brisbane campus at Banyo. My chosen degree was Batchelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology and Philosophy, with Philosophy being my first love. I have completed 12 units (18 months), with each unit worth 10 credit points, and I will work towards completing the next 12 units, giving a total of 240 credit points, which will earn me my degree. My mental health deteriorated in September 2016, forcing me to take a break, possibly until second semester this year (2017). I would dearly love to share my experience, and to offer any meagre advice I can. It has been a most wonderful and fullfilling experience.
