Continue on your path to becoming a psychologist with the APAC-accredited Graduate Diploma of Psychology Advanced

If you already hold a three-year bachelor's degree in psychology, the Graduate Diploma of Psychology Advanced (GDPA) is your next step to becoming a registered psychologist.

 

The GDPA is equivalent to a fourth year honours program, and provides you with the intensive research training needed to advance to Masters-level studies required to become a psychologist*. The research and analytical skills you will learn will also be valuable if you wish to embark on a research career with PhD studies or strengthen your employability in a wide range of careers.

 

The course is conducted 100% online with the award-winning Psychology Research Portal, which encompasses all of the tools, resources and information you need to complete your research fully online.

 

*The course is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).

 

Apply by Monday, 3 February to start in the February 2020 intake. Speak to one of our Advisors for more information.
