Admission to the course requires successful completion of an APAC-accredited fourth year of study in psychology with a minimum distinction average (H2A). These qualifications must have been completed within the last 10 years.

These forms must be submitted online - visit the How to apply for a Psychology course for more detailed information.

The closing date for applications is the end of October and admission to the program is competitive. Selection will be based on academic results, referee reports and supplementary information. Short-listed applicants are required to attend an interview, usually held in November.

Applicants with international qualifications will need to have their qualifications assessed by the Australian Psychological Society (APS)

Extra requirements

If your application is successful for the Master of Psychology (Educational and Developmental) course, you must then apply for and obtain provisional registration with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) before commencing your study, and maintain such registration throughout the period of enrolment.

The PsyBA requires that any applicant, whether domestic or international, who has completed secondary or tertiary studies in a language other than English must supply an IELTS and gain test results that meet English language requirements for provisional registration as a psychologist before commencing the program.
