Important Notes

  • Applicants must have completed an APAC accredited four-year sequence in psychology (or international equivalent) within 10 years of their expected commencement. Exceptions may be possible in limited circumstances.

  • International psychology qualifications must be assessed by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) before an application is submitted.  Note that the APS will only assess complete qualifications.

  • Enrolled students must register as provisional psychologists prior to program commencement. Registration must be maintained for the duration of their enrolment.

  • Applicants should familiarise themselves with the relevant Registration Standards for the psychology profession. The requirements of these standards must be met before an application for registration as a provisional psychologist can be approved.

  • All applicants, domestic and international, are encouraged to use AHPRA’s Pathways diagram for all professions (under ‘Additional resources’) to guide their understanding of the Registration Standard: English Language Skills. This Registration Standard is the basis for the program’s English language requirements.

  • Applicants interested only in coursework should submit just one coursework application.  An additional coursework preference can be nominated within the same application (e.g., apply for 8257 and indicate in that same application that your second preference is 8256).

  • Applicants wishing to be considered for BOTH a stand-alone Master program AND a Combined program must submit ONE coursework (Master) application and ONE research (Combined) application.  The Graduate Research School’s website provides a detailed application guide for all research programs.
