The APS assesses the level at which an applicant’s qualifications are comparable to an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) sequence of study in psychology.
The Australian government has nominated the Australian Psychological Society (APS) as the assessing body for overseas psychologists applying for migration to Australia under the Skilled Migration categories. This means the APS is the only body in Australia that can assess psychology qualifications for migration to Australia under these categories.
Most universities and higher education providers require an APS assessment of psychology qualifications. This assessment should be completed before applying for entry to an APAC accredited course in psychology.
Students seeking to apply for APAC accredited postgraduate psychology programs only require an APS assessment and do NOT need an assessment from the Psychology Board of Australia. Students will however need to apply for provisional registration with the Psychology Board of Australia. Evidence of your enrolment in an accredited postgraduate degree is sufficient to apply for provisional registration with the Psychology Board of Australia.
As of 1 June 2016 the Australian Psychological Society is no longer accepting applications for assessment of psychology qualifications for the purpose of registration. For provisional or general registration to practise as a psychologist in Australia, you must apply directly to the Psychology Board of Australia.
Your employer may request you undergo an APS assessment of psychology qualifications for employment purposes. It is important to note this assessment may not be used for registration.
Your employer may request that you have an APS assessment conducted as many psychology graduates work in higher education or fields related to psychology where registration as a psychologist may not be required.
It is important to note that psychology is a regulated profession, and only those who hold registration as a psychologist may describe themselves as a psychologist.
