    1. who have completed, or will complete, a four year Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited sequence in psychology within the last 10 years, and
    2. who have attained a minimum entrance requirement of an Upper Second Class Honours (2A) psychology degree or equivalent, and
    3. who are eligible for registration with the Psychology Board of Australia as a provisional psychologist

    Please note the following:

    Those applicants who have not completed a four year APAC- accredited sequence in psychology, must have their qualifications assessed by the Australian Psychological Society (APS), and provide the resulting assessment report from the APS with their application. For information on how to do this and the fees associated with this service refer to the APS.  The assessment report must state that the applicant's qualifications are comparable to a four year APAC- accredited sequence in psychology. Applicants must also provide a letter from their University indicating that their fourth year qualification is equivalent to an upper second class Honours degree.

    Students who have completed a three year plus a fourth year APAC-accredited sequence without Honours grading need to provide a letter from their University indicating that their fourth year qualification is equivalent to an upper second class Honours degree.

    Applicants should note that meeting minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee entry to the program. Each year the number of applicants greatly exceeds the number of available places.  A competitive entry process is followed.  Applications need to be submitted on-line through the University of Tasmania Admissions website by the end of September.  All applicants must satisfy the Division of Psychology that they are suitable candidates for professional training in psychology. Short-listed applicants will be required to attend an interview in November.

    If you are accepted into an accredited postgraduate psychology program in Australia you will need to obtain Provisional Registration from the Psychology Board of Australia in order to commence the degree.  The minimum educational requirement for Provisional Registration in Australia is an accredited four year sequence of study.  Please be aware that Provisional Registration for Psychologists will require successful applicants to disclose the following:

    • Any criminal history (both National and International where applicable)
    • Any impairment that is likely to detrimentally affect your capacity to practise as a psychologist
    • If your registration in any profession is currently suspended or has been cancelled in Australia or overseas

    Overseas applicants will also need to provide proof of English language proficiency. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) has specified that it is mandatory for all graduates seeking registration with the Psychology Board of Australia to demonstrate that they have achieved an overall IELTS score of 7.0 (academic module) with a minimum score of 7 in each of the four components (listening, reading, writing and speaking).  Test results will generally need to have been obtained within the two years preceding the application for registration.
