The Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) is designed for graduates who have completed an accredited three year course in psychology, who wish to complete an accredited fourth year in psychology to become eligible for provisional registration as a psychologist in Australia.

The course introduces students to applied and professional uses of psychology whilst they learn about professional ethics and develop an appreciation for the social and cultural contexts of psychological research and professional practice.

Students also have the option of undertaking advanced research training, as well as the opportunity to conduct your own original piece of research, which in some cases may lead to publication in a professional journal.


Successful completion of the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) qualifies you to apply for provisional registration with the Psychology Board of Australia and allows you to work across a wide and diverse range of areas including:

  • child safety officer
  • clinical work
  • counselling
  • neuropsychology
  • child development
  • education
  • forensic
  • health
  • organisational and sports psychology
  • school guidance officer
  • teaching and research.


The Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and qualifies you to apply for provisional registration as a psychologist.

Provisionally registered psychologists are required to undertake a minimum of two years industry supervision or complete a relevant postgraduate course (such as CQUniversity’s Master of Clinical Psychology) to be eligible for full professional accreditation as a registered psychologist.
