College Course Approval Guidelines for Postgraduate Professional Courses 

Professional postgraduate courses in recognised areas of psychology are evaluated against the APS College Course Approval Guidelines for Postgraduate Professional Courses. This ensures that students successfully completing an APS-approved professional postgraduate degree achieve a level of professional competence which meets the needs of clients and the community more generally, and obtain suitable preparation for membership of the relevant College.

The process of course approval is undertaken by expert APS College assessors at the same time as APAC accreditation assessment is conducted. Enquiries about the process of college course approval should be directed to the Coordinator, Science and Education, at science@psychology.org.au, or by telephoning (03) 8662 3300.
