About

If you are a psychology graduate, undertake an additional year of study to get registered as a provisional psychologist.

This course takes graduates of Bachelor of Psychology and Graduate Diploma of Psychological Studies one step closer to a career as a psychologist. Studying this course gives you the opportunity to receive provisional registration with the Psychology Board of Australia and associate membership of the Australian Psychological Society.

In the Graduate Diploma of Psychology, you will undertake both coursework and a research project, further developing your ability to critically evaluate theory and empirical studies.

You will also learn advanced skills in research design, implementation, analysis and reporting as well as your understanding of professional responsibilities, standards of performance and ethical issues.

Once you complete the Graduate Diploma of Psychology, you can then complete either two years of supervised practice as a provisional psychologist, or pursue further study.
