Career Opportunity

A four-year psychology course opens many doors in the workforce. Currently, upon graduation from the Bachelor of Psychology you may apply for provisional registration as a psychologist in Australia. You could then become eligible for general registration as a psychologist with at least two years of supervised practical experience. Alternatively, you may be eligible to progress to an APAC-accredited fifth-year program (followed by one year of supervised practice), or an APAC-accredited fifth and sixth year, which also lead to eligibility for general registration.

  • Work for health services

    Provide counselling and wellbeing services through social welfare positions or, once you have completed your registration, go into private practice.

  • Support business

    Psychology is highly relevant to almost every industry and workplace. Work with large and small companies or consulting firms to provide human resource and organisational wellbeing support and insights.
