You will need to refresh your fourth-year qualification before you apply to any of our Masters courses in psychology.

You will normally refresh by completing 4 units from the Bachelor of Psychology (Honours). These can be taken as Single Subject but you may want to consider applying directly and obtaining RPL credit for half of the program (4 units) if FEE-HELP support is important to you during your studies.

The units you will normally need to complete as a refresher program are:

  • GDP1 - Professional Practice and Professional Ethics
  • GDP3 - Psychological Assessment
  • GDP4 - Evidence-Based Practise and Practise Based Evidence
  • GDP7 - Developmental Psychopathology across the Lifespan

More information on the Honours or Fourth Year Psychology Refresher Program will be provided here in due course.

You can also contact [email protected] for additional advice or to develop an individual pathway plan. For example, applicants who have recently completed a PhD may not need to refresh their Research Methods subjects.

Approval of a refresher sequence is not the same as Masters admission. Masters applications are still very competitive, and an approved refresher sequence will make you eligible to apply, but cannot guarantee a Masters offer in most cases.
