Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited Psychology Major

An APAC accredited Psychology Major sequence is a prerequisite for any student wishing to undertake further study to become a practising psychologist.

A three-year accredited psychology sequence requires the completion of a minimum of 125 credit points worth of undergraduate Psychology subjects, which includes the completion requirements of a BSc Psychology major.

The APAC accredited major requires the completion of eight compulsory subjects (two at Level 1; four at Level 2; two at Level 3) and at least two elective Psychology subjects at Level 3. All subjects are worth 12.5 points.

Further information on the structure of the APAC accredited Psychology Major sequence is available on the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences website.
