    Master of Professional Psychology


    The Masters of Professional Psychology comprises a fifth-year qualification in Psychology training. It provides you with the theoretical knowledge, research skills development, and practical skills required to prepare you for professional practice in a wide variety of setting and with diverse populations. 

    The degree forms part of a 5+1 pathway to general psychology registration. After completion of the degree, you will be required to undertake a one-year internship via the Psychology Board of Australia before being eligible for general registration as a psychologist.

    The Master of Professional Psychology consists of 36 units.

    You must complete 27 units of coursework and 9 units (i.e., 300 hours) of supervised practicum.

    Coursework covers areas such as foundations of psychological practice, assessment across the lifespan, evidence based interventions, and applied research for practitioners.


    Entry Requirements

    Applicants must normally hold a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification or hold a the Graduate Certificate in Leadership in Education or closely related qualification. In addition, applicants must also have no less than two years’ work experience in an organisation.

    English Program Requirements

    If you don’t meet our English language entry requirements and need to improve your English language proficiency, you can do so through our approved English Language Instruction Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) providers. This means that you can attend the required English language tuition at approved ELICOS providers and gain direct entry into university without an IELTS or TOEFL test.


    Graduates are eligible to undertake a one-year internship via the Psychology Board of Australia. Following the successful completion of a one-year internship, graduates will be eligible to apply for general registration as a psychologist and be qualified to work in a range of mental health, forensic, education and training and corporate settings. People with existing careers in human services such as nursing, teaching, the public service, social and human resources undertake this course to better understand human behaviour and to add depth to their knowledge and work skills.
