This program has been granted full accreditation by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).
Full time study is 40 credit points per semester. Students enrolling part-time can undertake the degree over four semesters. Part-time students should complete the coursework aspects in the first two semesters of their enrolment, and undertake the thesis in the third and fourth semesters of enrolment.
Fourth year studies are usually extremely demanding, and in order to stay on track, students are expected to attend all classes. Full-time students are expected to devote at least 40 hours per week to program-related work, whereas part-time students are expected to devote at least 20 hours per week. It is suggested that commitments outside university (e.g., work) are kept to a minimum, wherever possible.
International Students: Students must undertake four subjects per semester (equivalent to 40 credit points) to fulfil student visa requirements.
