Studies in psychology can provide the knowledge and skills necessary for career success as well as providing you with greater insight into human thoughts, actions, feelings, and behaviours in specific contexts. Australia’s premier universities offer programs in this subject at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels – in some instances even serving as entry to postgraduate studies (usually two year Masters programs) leading to professional accreditation as a psychologist.
Typically, becoming a practising psychologist involves successfully completing a four-year bachelor degree (with honours) in psychology from an Australian university and then either enrolling in an accredited two-year Master program or working under a registered psychologist – requirements set by the Psychology Accreditation Council apply to both pathways.
UNSW is one of Australia’s premier universities and consistently ranks highly in the QS World University rankings for psychology. Based in Kensington near Bondi Beach and Paddington shopping precincts, it offers multiple undergraduate degrees related to this field including its flagship Bachelor of Psychological Science course as well as three-year Bachelors in Science or Arts degrees that give students access to a range of science and arts subjects as well as seven double degree options such as Anatomy & Histology or Animal Production Production.
