The Master of Psychology (Clinical) is designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to practise as a registered psychologist and work with clients with high and low prevalent mental health issues including anxiety, depression, autism, disability, relationship issues and more.
With small class sizes, face-to-face teaching and three work placements built into the degree; students develop professional competence under the guidance of highly experienced supervisors and academics who are also registered psychologists. These clinical placements, totalling over 1000 hours, offer the chance to develop practical skills with clients across all age ranges and provide networking opportunities with future employers in mental health and health care settings. This degree also has strong links to a professional community of clinical practitioners.
Upon successful completion of the degree, graduates are eligible to apply for full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia and find work in a wide variety of public and private settings. Further postgraduate clinical supervision is required to become an endorsed clinical psychologist.
Prospective applicants should note that entry to this degree is competitive and strict quotas apply.
