Read more information on application and enrolment procedures.
Completion of an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited 4 year sequence of study in psychology (e.g., Bachelor of Social Sciences (Psychology) with Honours; Postgraduate Diploma of Psychology or equivalent) within the last 10 years, and have achieved a minimum upper second class Honours (H2A), or equivalent. Applicants must also be eligible for provisional registration as a psychologist. Applicants are assessed on academic performance, 2 referee reports, psychometric assessment, and personal suitability via interview.
Students who have obtained their qualifications outside Australia must have their qualifications assessed prior to applying for this program and prior to applying for registration with the Psychology Board of Australia. The Australian Psychological Society (APS) provides this assessment service for the Board and the assessment assists the Board in determining if the student’s qualifications are equivalent to an ‘approved qualification’. However, it is important to note the final decision on equivalence rests with the Board. For more information on equivalency assessments please visit www.psychology.org.au
If you obtained your qualifications outside Australia please submit evidence of your APS equivalency below.
Students must obtain provisional registration from the Psychology Board of Australia before commencing the program.
Condition of Enrolment
All students must obtain provisional registration from the Psychology Board of Australia (PBA)
Important Notes for Students
Information on Psychology Board of Australia registration requirements can be obtained from http://www.psychologyboard.gov.au/
Obtaining provisional registration can be a lengthy process. The University will assist students as far as possible with their application to the Board. Students should contact the Program Advisor in the School of Social Sciences for further assistance.
Under the National Law, students must obtain provisional registration as a psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia before they commence their program of study, and for the duration of the program. In the event that the Registration Board refuses an application for provisional registration, the offer of candidature in the program will be rescinded – it is not possible to complete the program without holding provisional registration as a psychologist.
Bond University takes no responsibility for students who do not fulfil the requirements for registration and admission to the program.
English Language Proficiency Requirements
As tuition is delivered in English, all international students will be required to provide documented evidence of the required level of proficiency in the English language. Read more detailed information on English Language Proficiency Requirements for university study.
