Postgraduate Study

Do you have an accredited four year psychology degree? If you are interested in pursuing professional registration as a psychologist then either our Professional Doctorate or one of our Masters level programs could be for you.

Do you want to become a registered counsellor? You can apply for the University of Queensland's Master of Counselling program if you have a three or four year bachelor's degree in one of the following areas: Social Work; Psychology; Social Welfare; Behavioural Studies; Human Services; Nursing; the Therapies; Medicine; or other related fields of study.

Alternatively, if you would like to pursue a career in research or academia, you should consider a Research PhD.
