Are you a high achieving psychology student, want to distinguish yourself from other graduates and pursue a rewarding career as a clinical psychologist or in other professions? If answered yes, then the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) could be the next step for you! The honours program is the most common critical stepping stone towards becoming a registered clinical psychologist.

The honours will give you access to developing an in-depth understanding of psychological theories and practice, and the opportunity to design, conduct, interpret and communicate research.
The expertise and skills that you can gain in the honours program will give you access to better understanding yourself, growing and enhancing your wellbeing, creating healthier and more empowering relationships, adapting to changes in your personal and professional environments, and empowering other people. The knowledge and skills you can acquire in the honours program are designed to prepare you for careers in a wide range of areas in private and government organisations.
