Professional recognition

The Master of Clinical Psychology is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council as a fifth and sixth year course in psychology, and is approved by the Psychology Board of Australia. It is also approved by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) for the purposes of eligibility for entry into the APS College of Clinical Psychologists. Graduates who go on to complete a Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) approved registrar program may obtain practice endorsement in clinical psychology.

The Master of Clinical Psychology is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council as a fifth and sixth year course in psychology, and is approved by the Psychology Board of Australia.

It is also approved  by the Australian Psychological Society for the purposes of eligibility for entry into the APS College of Clinical Psychologists.

In each year of the Master of Clinical Psychology, part-time students are expected to complete one professional placement of 250 hours. The four professional placements will be completed in a variety of locations, enabling students to acquire skills and in work with diverse client populations. Placement locations may include public and private hospitals, community mental health services, neurology and rehabilitation services, educational settings and private practices.

Given the varied locations of students enrolled in the course, the responsibility for locating or exploring local placement options rests largely with the student. University staff may assist in locating options should difficulties arise in this process.

As those residing in rural and remote areas may be required to travel a considerable distance for placements, students may undertake placement hours in a single block format (e.g. five days a week for seven weeks), or they may divide their block placement into two or more sections (e.g. four weeks, then three weeks, with time intervening), in order to take advantage of study leave or vacation arrangements. Alternatively, students undertaking field placement in settings closer to home may complete their placement by attending one or two days per week for a more extended period.

It is also possible that some placement requirements may be completed at a student's current workplace, subject to the workplace meeting the requirements of the placement, and the availability of supervision by an endorsed and approved clinical psychologist.

APAC requirements prohibit the granting of credit for placements on the basis of previous experience gained as a registered psychologist. However, under some very specific circumstances, credit may be granted for placements completed in other accredited postgraduate courses leading to other areas of endorsement. Academic and placement credit is assessed on an individual basis following enrolment in the program.

Please note that the following subjects have a Workplace Learning component:

PSY545 Clinical Psychology Placement 1
PSY546 Clinical Psychology Placement 2
PSY547 Clinical Psychology Placement 3
PSY548 Clinical Psychology Placement 4

Residential schools are a great way to practise what you are learning in a hands-on environment, and to meet your lecturers and classmates.

Some online courses include a residential school, where you will attend a CSU campus during certain sessions throughout your course.

PSY533 Foundations of Clinical Psychology
PSY534 Clinical Psychopathology
PSY535 Adult Assessment
PSY536 Adult Interventions 1
PSY537 Child Assessment

Browse through the tabs below for more information or visit our International website to discover more about an Australian university experience like no other.

Please note: if you choose to study online with CSU, the course study mode will not meet necessary requirements for granting Australian student visas.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success. Minimum requirements can vary from country to country, so please take some time to review our entry requirements  before starting your application. If you cannot find the requirements for your country please contact us.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, our international support services can make all the difference. From managing visa requirements to study support, and career advice, we’ve got you covered and our friendly staff will help make your university experience one you will never forget.

At CSU, we work with trained international recruitment agents in more than 40 countries to help you find the course and study option that is right for you. Our agents can assist you to apply for study either on campus in Australia or online. Depending on your country of citizenship you may be required to apply to CSU via an agent. Visit our International agents page for more information.
