What will I learn?
Why study the Graduate Diploma in Psychology at UNE?
Are you interested in studying psychology, but have already completed a Bachelor degree in other subject areas? The Graduate Diploma in Psychology provides an effective means of getting an accredited undergraduate major in psychology to satisfy personal interest, or in order to pursue subsequent studies in psychology at fourth year and beyond for academic or professional reasons. With no former university units in psychology this degree involves 10 units that can be completed in a minimum of 1 year (if study commences in Trimester 3 and finishes in Trimester 2 of the following year). If an applicant has already completed Introductory Psychology units in a previous degree then they only need undertake 8 post-introductory units; which can be completed within two trimesters full-time. Advanced standing on up to fifty percent (50%) of the units in this course is available.
Candidates who complete and wish to pursue further study are eligible to apply for fourth year programs at UNE or elsewhere. At UNE there are quotas on our fourth year programs. The most recent cut-off for acceptance into UNE's Psychology Honours program was an average grade in the low Distinction range, and for the Graduate Diploma in Psychology (Advanced) it was an average grade in the mid-Credit range.
Course Aims
The aim of this course is to provide an accredited major in psychology for students who have completed a bachelor degree or equivalent. Students who achieve the required grades will be eligible to apply for entry into fourth year programs in psychology.
Career Opportunities
The Graduate Diploma in Psychology allows you to apply for employment positions that use psychological knowledge. Positions are available in a wide range of public, private and non-profit settings. Examples include human service organisations, employment agencies, counselling services, personnel management, market research, health and community services.
