Overview

Bond University Psychology School Overview

The primary objective of the Masters of Psychology (Clinical) Degree is to provide advanced education in the professional practice of psychology. The training is based on a scientist-practitioner model and is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and applied skills required by a registered practicing psychologist with an emphasis in the area of program specialization (i.e., Clinical Psychology). The program draws from a range of theoretical perspectives informed by contemporary research and practice. The Masters by Coursework Degree integrates coursework, research and practical placement experience. Students complete a series of placement experiences under the supervision of highly qualified and experienced Supervisors, and apply best practice models to a professional standard.

Placements are an integral part of this program. Students will undertake practical placements as part of their clinical training.

Entry Requirements

Completion of an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited 4 year sequence of study in psychology (e.g., Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours); Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science or equivalent) within the last 10 years, and have achieved a minimum upper second class Honours (H2A), or equivalent. Applicants must also be eligible for provisional registration as a psychologist. Applicants are assessed on academic performance, 2 referee reports, psychometric assessment, and personal suitability via interview.

Under the Australian National Law, students must obtain provisional registration as a psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia before they commence their program of study, and for the duration of the program. In the event that the Registration Board refuses an application for provisional registration, the offer of candidature in the program will be rescinded – it is not possible to complete the program without holding provisional registration as a psychologist.
