To become eligible for registration as a psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia, you are required to complete a minimum 6-year sequence of education and supervised training. Upon graduation of this degree, you must complete an accredited year of postgraduate study – either the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours), or the Graduate Diploma of Psychology, plus two years of supervised practice in the field. Alternatively, you can complete a two-year Master of Psychology (Clinical), plus one year of supervised practice. Once you have completed an accredited fourth year of study, you will then need to complete another two years of combined study and supervised training, through either a Master of Professional Psychology, which involves one year of study followed by a one-year internship, or a Master of Psychology (Clinical), a two-year program that includes placements. After completing the required six-year sequence of education and supervised training, you can apply for general registration with the Psychology Board of Australia.
