Why study this course

This four-year general applied psychology program emphasises the application of knowledge to problems arising in professional practice, and graduates are equipped to move directly into the workforce as provisionally registered psychologists. It also provides an understanding of the theoretical framework within which various approaches and techniques have been developed. Experimental design relevant to applied research is an important part of the course. Whilst the principal focus is on psychology, the course also provides a broad appreciation of human behaviour and experience by including studies in health sciences. Due to accreditation requirements, students not attaining a credit average in their second and third year core psychology units will be required to exit the course with the Bachelor of Science (Psychology) award.


Graduates are eligible to apply for associate membership of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and provisional registration. To be registered as a Psychologist, graduates are required to undertake a further two years of accredited study or an approved internship.

Very interesting, fun, and if you enjoy helping people it is something I would recommend. Unfornately first year is quite dry but it will get better. The foundations are needed so first year is definitely the most boring.

If you want a thorough, evidence based course with great teachers and hands on assignments and assessments to consolidate your theoretical learning, Curtin offer a great course in the Bachelor of Psychology. I found the course to be stimulating and interesting, it was also challenging but doable. Highly recommend!
