IELTS: 7 0
Applications for the Master of Clinical Psychology (Advanced Entry) program are only accepted from those applicants who have general registration as a Psychologist with AHPRA OR an existing Area of Practice Endorsement with AHPRA, and who have attained a minimum entrance requirement of a Lower Second Class Honours (2B) psychology degree or equivalent at the commencement of the course.
Applicants should note that meeting minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee entry to the program. Applications need to be submitted on-line through the University of Tasmania Admissions website by the end of September. All applicants must satisfy the School of Psychological Sciences that they are suitable candidates for professional training in psychology. Short-listed applicants will be required to attend an interview in November.
If you are accepted into this postgraduate psychology program you will need to maintain your Registration from the Psychology Board of Australia for the duration of the degree.
Overseas applicants will also need to provide proof of English language proficiency. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) has specified that it is mandatory for all graduates seeking registration with the Psychology Board of Australia to demonstrate that they have achieved an overall IELTS score of 7.0 (academic module) with a minimum score of 7 in each of the four components (listening, reading, writing and speaking). Test results will generally need to have been obtained within the two years preceding the application for registration. For more information about registration requirements for overseas applicants refer to the Psychology Board of Australia. Please note: International students should also refer to the International General Entrance Requirements for further information.
The cost of studying at University of Tasmania varies largely depending on the type of university and the degree chosen. More often than not, humanities, arts, and education courses are less expensive than degrees in medical, engineering, or management. Furthermore, students who choose to study at the postgraduate level typically pay higher tuition fees, which again vary depending on the programme chosen.
Most universities provide scholarships or financial aid to students in order to help them offset their tuition costs. Students should be aware that additional course fees and incidental expenses may not be included in tuition. On average, international students can expect to pay A$37,950 annually, to study in University of Tasmania.
Students will undertake two placement units under the supervision of Psychology Board of Australia approved supervisors during the course of their degree.
These placements will be organised by the University on the student’s behalf and provide scaffolded learning experiences to support students in achieving Stage 4 competencies as measured by the Clinical Psychology Placement Rating Scale (CYPRS). The CYPRS has an inherent, inbuilt scaffolding of achievement from Stage 1 (skills commensurate with an entry level, provisionally registered psychologist working under high levels of supervision) through to Stage 4 (skills commensurate with an entry level, fully registered psychologist), with each level of achievement required at various stages of the placement experience.
