Reasons to Choose an APAC-accredited Course
The accreditation process ensures that standards of education and training in psychology offered by higher education providers are high and are rigorously maintained. Students must complete courses which are first accredited by APAC and then subsequently approved by the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) to be eligible for registration as a psychologist.
APAC accredits psychology courses and works with higher education providers to ensure continuous improvement of quality. This ensures that the courses:
- are evidence-based
- are up-to-date
- high quality and empirically supported
- produce graduates with a commitment to lifelong learning, with strong psychological literacy
- where applicable, provide suitable competencies for graduates to enter the psychology profession.
APAC conducts a program of auditing and monitoring of accredited higher education providers to ensure standards are maintained.
