Recognition

For the Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), completion of four years in Psychology is an important first step for registration as a psychologist in Australia. The Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) is accredited as the first three years of study. To complete the four years, students must complete an Honours year to meet the academic requirements for eligibility for provisional registration as a psychologist. An additional two years of supervised practice is necessary to apply for registration as a professional psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia. This can be through two years of supervised practice in the community or a fifth year of psychology study at university plus one year of supervised practice in the community or through an accredited Masters or professional doctoral degree. Some majors within the Bachelor of Commerce enable graduates to meet the membership requirements of relevant professional associations.
