If you are interested in psychology but have successfully completed an undergraduate degree in another field, the Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science provides you with the opportunity to complete the equivalent of a three-year psychology sequence and to gain a separate award, while developing the initial knowledge and skills upon which advanced skills can be built. After successfully completing the course, you will be well prepared to undertake a fourth-year course in psychology: either honours in psychology or a Graduate Diploma of Psychology in pursuit of provisional registration as a psychologist.
Deakin’s Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC), recognised for registration purposes by the Psychology Board of Australia (PBA) and enables you to undertake additional study in pursuit of provisional registration.
To be awarded the Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science, students must complete 8 credit points in psychology: eight compulsory units.
