APAC is an independent quality and standards organisation, appointed as an external accreditation entity for the Psychology Profession in Australia under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009. APAC develops and reviews accreditation standards for psychology programs of study in Australia. We then work with education providers and use the accreditation standards to determine whether programs of study for students seeking to practice as a registered psychologist in Australia meet the required education standards.
APAC accredits more than 650 programs of study across 41 higher education providers including programs in Malaysia and Singapore.
