To practice as a psychologist you must meet the requirements of the Psychology Board of Australia. The academic requirement for registration is a university degree including four years progressive study in psychology.
On completion of this degree, a graduate may register as a provisional psychologist. The further requirement for full registration is either 480 full-time days of supervised psychological work while registered as a provisional psychologist, or completion of an appropriate masters or doctoral degree including practical experience as a provisional psychologist. By satisfying Victorian registration, students will comply with the registration requirements of other states.
To qualify for full membership of the Australian Psychological Society you must complete at least an APAC-accredited six-year sequence of study in psychology. That is, completion of a four-year accredited program plus a further two years of postgraduate training in an accredited masters or doctoral program in psychology. Students enrolled in a psychology program accredited by APAC are eligible for student membership.
