This Professional Psychology award is designed to prepare fourth year psychology graduates with a fifth year of training under the ‘5+1 model’, as recommended by Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA), and will give graduates an APAC accredited professional qualification. This degree provides key training in ethics, psychological assessment, therapeutic interventions, and other professional skills, which achieves 50% of the requirements towards registration as a generalist psychologist. To meet the need for forensically oriented psychologists in the field, this degree also addresses psychological practice within the forensic psychology domain. Students who complete this degree must undertake additional appropriately supervised placement hours, which they must arrange themselves to obtain full registration as a psychologist.
One year full-time or two years part-time.
