Students admitted to the course with prior tertiary studies that satisfy part of the academic requirements of this course may be eligible for academic credit and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Assessment for progression to the fourth year
To be eligible for progression into the fourth year (honours year), students must achieve a minimum of a distinction average (70%) in core psychology units at the third year level. Due to limited places in the honours year the required average may be increased, however students with an average of at least 75% are guaranteed a place in fourth year. Students in this course who do not meet this standard for entry into fourth year will be eligible for the award of a Bachelor of Psychological Sciences subject to the completion of the requirements of that award.
Graduate entry into fourth year
Applicants from Australian universities who have completed an APAC (Australian Psychology Accreditation Council) accredited three-year sequence are eligible for entry into the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences (Honours). Students must achieve a minimum of a Distinction average (70%) in core psychology units at the third-year level and have at least credits in all second and third level core/major units (one unit exception allowed). Entry is competitive and based on academic results.
Applicants who have completed a psychology major at an overseas university must provide evidence that their degree meets the requirements of an APAC accredited Australian undergraduate degree in psychology.
