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;
  • are high quality;
  • produce graduates with strong psychological literacy and a commitment to lifelong learning;
  • where applicable, provide graduates with a suitable level of competencies to enter the psychology profession.

APAC conducts a program of auditing and monitoring of accredited higher education providers to ensure standards are maintained.
