Graduate programs are structured programs of induction and training with particular organisations. Students apply for graduate programs early in their final year of study, with most programs beginning early in the following year.

For psychology students, two types of graduate programs are relevant:

  • Generalist management in public and private organisations (all disciplines considered). The VPS graduate program and GoGrad, a local government graduate program, are two examples.
  • Human resources in both public and private organisations, and in human resource consultancies.

Graduate programs are very competitive. Employers look for exemplary results and indications of other personal strengths.
