APAC does not conduct accreditation of any individual's overseas qualifications and cannot comment on the equivalency of overseas programs of study.
The first step is to have the overseas psychology qualification assessed for comparability against the Australian psychology education pathway (called an “assessment of psychology qualifications”) by the Australian Psychological Society.
APAC does not provide services in relation to overseas qualifications, contact the APS directly for any information regarding the assessment process.
The assessment of overseas comparability report provided to you at the end of the assessment process may be required by education providers when you apply to study an accredited psychology program of study in Australia.
Once the assessment report is received by the APS, you can then identify where you stand in the pathway to becoming a registered psychologist in Australia and search for programs accordingly.
Assessments of overseas qualifications for the purpose of skilled migration as a psychologist under the General Skilled Migration Categories or for the purpose of applying for a Skilled Graduate (Temporary) Visa (Subclass 485) are conducted by the APS.
Assessments of overseas qualifications for the purpose of registration under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law are conducted by the Psychology Board of Australia.
