Pathways to Registration as a Psychologist

You need to complete an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) approved three year degree and an Honours year (e.g. BBehavSc(Psych) plus BBehavSc(Hons)) or an accredited four year program (e.g. BPsych(Hons)), and two more years of training. The extra two years may be in an accredited Master of Psychology degree (e.g. MPsych(Clin) at Flinders) or as part of a clinical PhD (PhD(Clin) at Flinders) or as practice supervised by an approved supervisor (registered psychologist) under a supervision plan approved by the Psychology Board of Australia. At that stage you would be eligible to apply to the Psychology Board for registration as a psychologist. The Graduate Diploma in Psychology gives students the equivalent of a three year Psych program, so is equivalent in Psychology terms to the three year BBehavSc(Psych). From www.flinders.edu.au/sabs/psychology/studying-psychology/faq/

The Bachelor of Psychological Science also enables you to undertake a nationally accredited major sequence in psychology. Graduates are eligible to apply for accredited honours programs in psychology and to subsequently pursue higher degree studies or supervision towards registration as a psychologist.
