Higher Education Frequently Asked Questions When do classes start for 2021? The academic calendar is available here Most courses start on 22 February 2021, with orientation dates TBC during the week prior. Orientation and Welcome Day is normally compulsory, so you may need to start as early as 15 February 2021. The Master of Professional Psychology (5th year) program starts with a two week intensive from January 27, 2021. The Master of Psychology (Clinical Psychology) and Doctor of Psychology (Clinical Psychology) start with a 1 week intensive on 15 February 2021. The specific course and class timetables are not yet available. A detailed provisional timetable will only be provided to applicants only if an offer is made. Most of our courses are full-time and students are expected to make arrangements to be available for classes during work hours. We try to schedule classes to run on the same day or days of the week to minimise disruption, especially for courses with placements. This is not always possible as a range of factors impact the timetable. In general, you will have one 3-hour class per taught unit you are enrolled in, plus placement and thesis supervision as and if applicable on an individual basis to be arranged with your supervisor/s. You can ask further questions about the classes for your course and program if you are invited to an interview.
