Clinical Psychology Postgraduate Courses

Psychology at UNE offers two professional courses that prepare students for careers in private practice and/or a diverse range of organisations with a focus that includes Health, Community Services, Rehabilitation Services, Disability Services, or Alcohol and Drug Services.

  1. Master of Psychology (Clinical) provides professional training in clinical psychology.
  2. Doctor of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology) combines professional training with the research training of a full Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Students initially apply to the Master of Psychology (Clinical). On completion of the coursework of the first year of the program, application may be made to transfer to the Doctor of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology).

  2. eligibility for graduates to become a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS)
  3. completion of the academic requirements necessary for an approved Registrar Program for practice endorsement in clinical psychology
