    Career Opportunities

    Clinical psychologists are employed in a wide range of practice-related fields including outpatient, inpatient, counselling, educational, forensic, health and other settings that focus on assisting people across the lifespan, from children through to elderly.  They are also employed in teaching and research settings.  Clinical Psychologists work in both the private sector and they also are employed in the public sector, including hospitals, government departments and agencies.


    Program Structure

    To satisfy the requirements of the award, students must complete 14 compulsory courses.

    As this is a professionally accredited program leading to registration as a psychologist, students may only:

    1.  defer their study for period of 2 terms (part-time) during their enrolment in the program with the approval of the Program Coordinator;

    2.  enrol twice in PSYC22003 Thesis I *; and

    3.  fail and repeat only one of the coursework components.  A fail within a course includes withdrawal fail, WF and absent fail, AF.

    Students enrolled in the Thesis I course, who withdraw after the census date, or who do not successfully complete the requirements will be automatically withdrawn from the Thesis II course.

    * As noted in point 2 above, such students would have one further opportunity to successfully complete Thesis I course.  Students may withdraw from Thesis II course with the approval of their supervisor and the Program Coordinator.  These students must re-enrol in Thesis II the subsequent academic year term 2 in order to complete the original project proposed in PSYC22004 Thesis II without academic penalty.

    Students who do not meet the above criteria will be withdrawn from the program.
