Choose your own path
To register as a psychologist in Australia, you must complete six years of full-time training. We offer a number of paths to reach this magic number, with two three-year APAC-accredited undergraduate psychology degrees and postgraduate programs in psychology that include masters degrees in professional, clinical, and educational and developmental psychology. As a student with us, you can choose the best combination of courses to achieve your goals.
Facilities and clinics
Your psychology studies will give you more than just the theory. You’ll also learn in our clinic facilities, where you can work with real clients under the supervision of registered psychologists. The Melbourne Psychology Clinic and the Mary Aikenhead Clinic – the Strathfield Psychology and Counselling Clinic – offer counselling and psychological assessments to the general community at a low cost and allow you to get practical experience as part of your degree.
When you study with us, you’re accessing teaching that is accredited or accredited with conditions by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and approved by the Psychology Board of Australia. You’ll learn from practitioners and clinicians who are actively involved in professional associations and community services, and gain real-world insights from respected industry professionals.
A degree at ACU can lead you to study just about anywhere in the world. You’ll have the opportunity to study core units at our Rome campus or choose to study for a semester or two at one of our partner universities in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The big question is, where can psychology take you?
