Applicants that have completed all the requirements for the Bachelor of Psychological Science, or another qualification which the Dean (Education) agrees is equivalent, may be accepted as a candidate for the honours degree providing a sufficiently high standard has been achieved in fulfilling the requirements for the bachelors degree. For admission in to the Psychology Honours program applicants must hold a Bachelor level qualification with an APAC (Australian Psychology Accreditation Council) accredited study sequence in Psychology, normally completed within the last 10 years. Selection is based on academic merit with applicants ranked for offer based on performance in second and third year Psychology topics.
The proposed honours program is identical to the existing, nationally accredited honours programs in psychology at Flinders, namely Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Honours), Bachelor of Arts (Honours), Bachelor of Science (Honours) and the 4th year of the Bachelor of Psychology (Honours). All honours programs in psychology share the same structure and requirements.
