Our Bachelor of Psychology accepts any diploma from any registered training organisation in Australia as entry to the second year.

*or equivalent diploma delivered outside of Australia.

Progress your career in psychology, counselling and mental health through advanced social, community and research psychology skills with entry from your diploma. This means if you have a diploma or offshore qualification equivalent to AQF Level 5 or higher this counts as the first year of your Psychology Degree. For international students, we suggest this Diploma should be in one of the following fields: health, allied health, nursing, community services, social services, early childhood and education. Students with an existing relevant diploma can apply directly to the Bachelor of Psychology.

You can also apply instead for the Associate Degree of Psychology which can be achieved after only one year of study. This will be dependent on the confirmation of enrolment and your visa requirements, and we encourage you to discuss with Chisholm International directly or an approved education agent if this is of interest.

When applying to Chisholm as an international student you will need to identify your course preference. Please speak with a recruitment agent regarding the best option for your visa application (if applicable).

Our psychology programs combine the work-ready elements of health-related diplomas with the research, statistical and theoretical understanding of psychology and psychological disorders.
