Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

Academic entry requirements

A recognized psychology honors or four year degree (or higher award) completed within the last 10 years with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 5.00 (on QUT's 7 point scale) in the fourth year of study.

The degree must be accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) as a 4-year training (or equivalent) program.

Applicants with overseas qualifications must provide certification from the Australian Psychological Society (APS) stating their degree is equivalent to APAC-approved, 4-year training in psychology.

The Australian Psychological Society advises the average processing time is eight weeks, therefore applicants with overseas qualifications need to seek certification by no later than July.

Additional entry requirements

Ask two referees to provide us with confidential reports via the Psychology Reference System. This system is the same across many Australian universities. To be able to use the system, you will need to have an active annual subscription. The cost is $25.00 and can be paid for through the "My Account" section in the payment tab. It is recommended that one report is from your fourth-year thesis supervisor.
