On successful completion of the degree, graduates will have completed extensive supervised field placements, undertaken individual and group supervision, developed proficient skills across the eight competencies, and have acquired the professional skills to meet the requirements for the ‘5+1 internship model’ for generalist registration as a psychologist. 

Graduation from the Master of Professional Psychology (MPP) one year program allows application to complete the AHPRA 5+1 Internship year, which in turn leads to registration as a psychologist with Psychology Board of Australia. Graduates who have completed both qualifications will be able to graduate with both masters degrees, either individually or concurrently.
Cairnmillar offers the 6th Internship year in the Master of Professional Psychology Practice (MPPP) program. This 5+1 Double Masters program at Cairnmillar is currently unique. For information about the difference between Cairnmillar’s MPP and MPPP courses, please click here.
