How to get your International Qualifications Assessed

The Australian Psychological Society (APS) assesses individuals coming into Australia, not APAC. Please see their information page.

How to find a Supervisor for Internship Pathways

The Psychology Board of Australia has a list of approved supervisors on their website and their contact details.

How to check if a Completed Course was Accredited

APAC only lists currently active accredited programs on the website. Many courses have been suspended or discontinued (taught out). Please fill out our Historical Course Request to find out if an older degree was accredited at the time of completion.
