PhD in Psychology (Integrated)

Become a leading researcher in psychology, with additional support and guidance. Our integrated program offers psychology graduates an alternative path to a doctoral degree.

INTEGRATED PHD IN PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM

During the first year of our integrated program, you’ll receive training in best-practice research methods. This allows graduates of our Bachelor of Psychology or similar to undertake a PhD, without previous thesis-research experience.

On passing the first-year components with a 70% average, you’ll begin your own original research, graduating in the standard timeframe.

You’ll make real contributions to the psychology field through an original PhD thesis in one of research-focus areas. Our expert staff offer world-class opportunities for interdisciplinary research.
